  • Went here while visiting the auditorium of Tenerife. There wasn't much to seen because its close, but you still can enjoying the view from this place. 
  • Should you be anyway in the vicinity, one can consider to look over here also just yet. There is actually to see anything special, you might see elsewhere in Tenerife... A small, low old tower...
