Pirámides de Güimar and Candelaria half-day tour
- Visit an Ethnographic Park of great cultural value: Pirámides de Güimar
- Discover the city of Candelaria, patron saint of the Canary Islands
- Learn about the culture of our Guanches aborigines
You begin our visit to Pirámides de Güimar, an Ethnographic Park of great cultural value measuring some 64,000 square meters. The main attraction is the six-step pyramids, oriented towards the sun during the summer and winter solstices. You will walk through its Poison Garden. This interesting natural scene, besides the park's footpaths, is unusual in that it houses over seventy poisonous plant species from around the world. It is, therefore, a unique exhibition in the Canary Islands, which contains some of the world's most dangerous plants in its 1.500 m2. Thus, the Poison Garden, apart from being conceived in order to promote knowledge, conservation and enjoyment of a rather different botanical collection, also aims, from a playful point of view, to educate and raise awareness about the danger to mankind of the poisons present in the plant world.
You will continue our route with a visit to Candelaria, where next to the ocean the basilica stands in honor of the Virgin of Candelaria, patron saint of the Canary Islands, surrounded by imposing bronze Guanche statues. A half-day excursion that will allow you to discover a little more about the culture of our Guanches aborigines!
