3. Roque Cinchado

 

Roque Cinchado is located in Las Canadas National Park and is one of the park's most important attractions. It is a unique panorama, with its red rock called Cinchado, but you will not be able to take full advantage of the beauty of Cinchado from the road; you have to go much closer. It is only nearby that you can contemplate not only its colors but also its unusual shape, due to the erosion of the rock. It will eventually collapse perfectly.

When you visit you will notice that the rock is permanently guarded by ropes and vigils which - and this is interesting - are not there to protect the rock, but the flowers that grow around it. If there was nothing here to protect them, these splendid flowers would be trampled by visitors. The presence of these flowers and the impressive rock formation allow you to enjoy this place without having to walk very far. There is ample parking space on site.

 

4. Garachico

In the distant past, Garachico was a bustling trading port. It was filled with sailboats and steamers loaded with bananas, cane sugar, and wine, and it also hosted a shipyard. Mother Nature interrupted all this when the area was devastated by volcanic eruptions in 1706 and lava from the Vólcan Negro, which is part of Teide. The villagers all managed to escape, but the town was never going to revert to the major port it was. This did not prevent Garachico from recovering from this event and turning into a Tenerife attraction full of charm and beauty. Today, the village mixes stately bourgeois houses and picturesque little fisherman's houses decorated with a myriad of different colors.
