Stop at: Guía de Isora
The historic center of Guía de Isora was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 2009 due to the large number of buildings representative of traditional Canarian architecture that are concentrated in its streets. Most of these buildings are concentrated around Calle de Abajo, Calle de Arriba, Calle Tagoro and La Vera. The layout of these streets, dotted with alleys, corresponds to the typical plan of the old towns, with varying widths and irregular shapes. Other traditional elements, such as the washing places, were key to the daily life of the villagers until a few decades ago and can still be found as part of the cultural heritage of the municipality.
Stop at: Chío
From Guía de Isora we arrive at Chío, which is the main entity in the northwest of Guía de Isora; located at 680 m, in the center of a large area not covered by the malpaíses and three kilometers from the town of Guía de Isora.
Stop at: Santiago del Teide
From Chía we will reach Santiago de Teide, a municipality in Tenerife located in the southwest of the island, which extends from the coast of Puerto Santiago to the pine forests of Teide along a difference in altitude of 1000 meters.
Stop at: Buenavista del Norte
We descend from Santiago del Teide to Buenavista del Norte, known as Isla Baja, where we will flatten for about 10 kilometers between banana plantations.
The municipality of Buenavista del Norte, born in the sixteenth century and faithful preserver of its traditions, is located in the northwest corner of the island. This is undoubtedly one of the most scenic areas of the island, an ideal environment for the life of its five thousand inhabitants.
The town has attractions of unquestionable value, from its charming streets and its coastline full of coves to a leisure offer that respects nature.
Eighty percent of the municipal territory is occupied by protected areas. Among them is the Teno Rural Park, a natural monument of some 7,500 hectares with spectacular rural and marine landscapes, with massifs and ravines of extraordinary beauty.
The Los Gigantes Cliff, between 300 and 600 meters high, falls vertically into the sea next to the Barranco de Masca. In this strip of difficult access is the Caserío de Masca, one of the best examples of the rural architecture of Tenerife and declared Ethnographic Site.
Stop at: Masca
We will have 12 kms of constant climbing before facing the challenge of the day, Masca, one of the most demanding climbs of the island with only 4 kms and ramps between 19% and 20% gradient.
The small houses of the Caserío de Masca are lined up on the ridges of the mountains. They occupy practically every portion of the habitable space, perched on the edge of the abyss drawn by the deepest ravines of the island. The Mirador de Cherfe (on the road from Santiago del Teide) offers a stupendous panoramic view of the inhabited area.
This was always a narrow and lost corner of civilization where electricity arrived not long ago and where the roads were little more than dusty tracks. In fact, for years there was only one way of communication with the outside world, the Camino de los Guanches, which connected Masca with Santiago del Teide. But thanks to this secular oblivion, it is preserved as it was in the past.
