  • A visit to the pyramids in Guímaru you let yourself as the last thing you want to see on the island. Price 11.9 euro per person is enough.

  • 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.
