Walking The Guanche Way in La Orotava

Up until 2012 , this hillside was as heavily forested as the one we’ve just emerged from but hurricane force winds hit this side of the island badly that year, snapping the trunks of pine trees as if they were spent matches. Where once there was only forest to be seen, now the whole coast has been opened up and you can see all the way from La Quinta to Punta Brava. All credit to the Cabildo (Island Government) who have turned adversity to advantage and have constructed a shiny new mirador (viewpoint) here to make the most of the panorama.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
