ARGUAYO
A stroll through the village of Arguayo begins with a visit to the sculpture dedicated to the work of the potters of the place, located a few metres from the car park at the Centro Alfarero Cha-Domitilla (Pottery Centre). Such was the importance of pottery that at the end of XIXth century and beginning of the XXth, almost all the families in Arguayo were employed in this activity. It was the women who preserved the techniques and traditional shapes inherited from the guanches themselves, passing them on from generation to generation.
CHA DOMITILA POTTERY CENTRE AND FOLKLORE MUSEUM
This pottery centre and museum, dedicated to the work of the famous potters of the village, is housed in an old, traditional Canarian house, restored magnanimously by Luis Ibáñez, an architect and collaborator of the artist César Manrique.
SANTIAGO DEL TEIDE Y SEÑORÍO DEL VALLE
In the church square of San Fernando Rey, the starting point for visiting this village, you have the opportunity to see the sculpture erected in memory of Alonso Díaz, one of the sons of the last Mencey [aboriginal king] of Adeje, baptised as Diego Diaz. Likewise, on this stop, you can visit the complex of the Señorío del Valle housed in a former stately home from the XVIIth century.
VISITORS CENTRE SANTIAGO DEL TEIDE
The Santiago del Teide Visitors Centre is situated in the town centre and its main objective is to explain the town's most important natural, tourist and architectural attractions. It consists of two separate sections where the most interesting aspects of Santiago del Teide are explained in an instructive, entertaining but scientifically rigorous manner. The first section is devoted to the eruption of the Chinyero volcano which occurred in 1909, whilst the second focuses on the points of greatest interest in the municipality with emphasis on the hiking trails in the area.
DEGOLLADA DE CHERFE Y CASAS DE ARASA
The scenery which can be appreciated from the Degollada of Cherfe and from the Casas de Arasa is profoundly marked by the unusual beauty of the landscape features left by the explosion of the Chinyero volcano.
MASCA
The village of Masca is situated within the Teno Rural Park, in the municipality of Buenavista del Norte, and is one of the best examples of traditional Canarian architecture.
