  • I was very interesting know these pyramids after have State in crowd of them in others travel, indeed, the history of this type of construction me is very interesting and esoteric since still not is has established any theory final on this type of constructions and their Exchange cultural between continents. In end, that went to visit the pyramids of Güímar and we have been a tremendous disappointment. I explain: the price of the entry is excessive, even the Basic that are 11 euros only can see the Museum and give the ride by the garden where are them pyramids. In this sense that I break a lance in favor of the Museum, since everything is very neat, with precise indications for your visit. And already, you surround yourself the pyramids, read a little information posts and you get the photo since you can not upload to the pyramid, just walk. I regret that my assessment is not so good because the reality is that the enclosure is very careful but are not worth the price.

  • Although they advise him... appears in guidelines... is little that seemed excessive in price for what is all over Tenerife. Personally those euros I seem to be a scam. And since pay children toddlers... without words. I do not advise it, I think with the photos that you see at the entrance have more than enough... And I acknowledge that if the amount were symbolic... you look through different eyes, but get a paste for what it really is. It warned to go.

  • Well worth a visit. There are the pyramids, gardens and an information centre. There is an auditorium where you can see a 20 minute film about the pyramids and Thor Heyerdahl's research.

  • Interesting theory questioning when old poblations actually started crossing the Atlantic, that they show you on video. Impressive amount of plants from Canary Islands at the archeological site. Way too expensive for what it actually offers.
  • Yes, there are piramides in Tenerife. While not as famous as the ones in Egypt or South Americe they still offer a good experience. There is even an inside cinema with a short documentary explaining about the origin of these.
  • Entrance for the pyramids was 11€ in 03/2016 and 18€ for all three exhibitions. This is a ridiculus price for what you can see.
  • Very interesting. Changed my view of the pyramids. If this was done by farmers, they must have been highly knowledgeable about pyramid building principles.
  • The pyramids were interesting to visit and an unexpected and intriguing find... If any of it is actually real.
