THE EMIGRANT'S VIEWPOINT
The Emigrants' Viewpoint and Monument are situated close to the fishing harbour of Garachico. The monument was built in homage to the thousands of Canarians who were forced to leave home for America in search of work and prosperity. It was erected by the Asociación los Chicharros Mensajeros in 1990 and is the work of the sculptor Fernando Garciarramos. It consists of a 2-metre high sculpture in bronze and a stone plaque commemorating the waves of emigration.
HISTORICAL CENTRE OF GARACHICO
The origins of Garachico go back to the years immediately after the Conquista (arrival of the Spanish) of the Island, the person who founded it at the end of century XVth being the Genovese, Cristóbal de Ponte.
SAN JUAN DEL REPARO AND GARACHICO VIEWPOINT
San Juan del Reparo is a small suburb of the municipal area of Garachico situated in the middle slopes. Its main economic activity continues to be farming, devoted mainly to self-sufficiency, displaying beautiful countryside with smallholdings and traditional buildings. The crops in this area, in contrast to those grown down on the coast and destined for export, were kept to be consumed by the farming families themselves.
ARENAS NEGRAS
Arenas Negras ("Black Sands") is a natural site situated within the Chinyero Volcano Special Nature Reserve. At this spot you will find a recreational area and footpaths that lead towards Chinyero, or Arenas Negras' own volcano, also known as Trevejo Mountain. This mountain is famous for its role in the volcanic eruption of 1706 that swept away the harbour and a considerable part of the town of Garachico. Here we have a landscape, almost sandy, hence the name, of obvious volcanic origin where a granular black soil predominates, contrasting vividly with the green of the pine forest. Various footpaths run across this zone allowing visitors to walk around and discover the places where the main eruptions in recent times have taken place on Tenerife.
