What to See | Los Gigantes | Tenerife App - Explore Tenerife

Casa del Patio

This stately home was built in the second half of the 17th century, but has been turned into a country hotel. It is a traditional nobleman’s house from that era and its architecture clearly defines the family’s social position, with its own threshing fields, wine press and granary.

The Church of San Fernando Rey

Built by Fernando del Hoyo Solorzano, the church contains 18th century figures and features an impressive hemispherical dome.

The Cliffs of Los Gigantes

The name Los Gigantes (meaning The Giants) needs no explanation. These huge cliffs in Santiago del Teide are part of Teno County Park and tower up to 600 m (1,970 ft) high, plummeting straight down into the sea to create a sight that is dizzying to behold, even from below. At the foot of the cliffs, the ocean floors are some 30 m (100 ft) deep and are home to a wealth of sea life, drawing in divers and deep-sea fishing fans.

The pottery centre and ethnography museum of Cha Domitila

Located in the village of Arguayo, there is a house that contains the pottery centre and museum. The house features traditional Canarian architecture with a central patio and a fountain. Before the museum was brought here, the building was in ruins. Inside, visitors will discover the traditional technique used to work the clay and will see some of the most typical pieces of pottery. This craft is considered to have been inherited from the Guanche people, which is an important factor when studying its evolution.
