The Centro de Visitantes del Barranco de Masca (Masca Gorge Visitor Centre), in the Teno Rural Park, from this month, is now open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., uninterruptedly. The route through the ravine can be carried out only on weekends and on holidays, upon reservation of a place. There is, for now, still no possibility of exit by sea, until the works of the beach jetty are completed, which have gone out to tender. 

The Minister of Natural Environment and Security Management, Isabel García, recently held a meeting with the residents of the village, in which the mayor of Buenavista del Norte, Antonio González, was also present, and where it was explained that the opening of the visitor centre will also serve to reorder the influx of people in this enclave. Residents expressed their concerns and needs, emphasizing the traffic problem and the need for the presence of a local police in the area, to alleviate and control the parking problem.

“The Visitor Centre is a must for walkers who want to explore the ravine, but also offers a wide range of complementary services for visitors, such as information about the Teno Rural Park in general and its network of trails, and in particular about Masca, what to see, what to do there, trails to do as an alternative to the ravine, etc." the counsellor concluded.
