ABOUT THE AREA
Tenerife is the striking grande dame in the archipelago family. Attracting over six million visitors a year, the island’s most famous southern resorts offer Brit-infused revelry and clubbing, combined with white sandy beaches and all-inclusive resorts. But get your explorer’s hat on and step beyond the tourist spots and you’ll discover an island of extraordinary beauty and diversity, with remote mountain-ridge villages, cultured port settlements and charming ancient towns.
This potpourri of experiences continues with tropical-forest walks and designer-shop struts, dark forays into volcanic lava, a sexy and sultry Carnaval celebration that’s second only to Rio’s, and a stash of museums and temples to modern art. But above all else, this is an island of drama, and nothing comes more dramatic than the snow-draped Pico del Teide, Spain’s tallest mountain and home to some of the most fabulous hiking in the whole country.
The proliferation of Guanche archaeological sites around the caves and ravines of Guimar are testament to the importance of the area before the Spanish conquest of the island. Guimar is one of Tenerife’s oldest towns as a result of a pact made between the Guanche Mencey Anaterve of Guimar on behalf of the southern Menceys and Alonso Fernandez de Lugo, the Spanish leader of the conquistadores. As a result, with friendly relations already established, Guimar was one of the first areas to be settled by the Spanish.
Blessed with year round plentiful water supplied by the Barranco de Herques and the Badajoz and El Rio Ravines, Guimar became wealthy from its rich agricultural output. Guimar’s rich supply of water was ingeniously tapped by farm workers through aqueducts, galleries and wells, ensuring a constant flow to the plantations of sugar, tomatoes, potatoes and avocados and making Guimar the principle supplier of produce to the south of the island.
Set against the dramatic izana Mountains, the town of Guimar has a beautiful, well preserved old quarter with historic churches, traditional houses, and pretty plazas as well as a picturesque seaside and marina at El Puertito.
