Valley Views and Tasty Food at El Calderito de La Abuela

Literally translated as ‘Grandma’s Cooking Pot’, El Calderito de La Abuela sits on the crest of the La Orotava valley in the small neighbourhood of Cuesta de la Villa in Santa Úrsula.  From its cosy dining room, views spread right across the valley and along the north west coast as far as Buenavista lighthouse, and you can watch the sun sink behind La Palma and cast its pink dye over Puerto de la Cruz.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
