This trek starts in a place called Cruz de Tejeda – an important crossroad of several paths of the indigenous people. These paths used to connect their settlements, nowadays we can enjoy them for trekking.
Many stages of the tour are through the pine forests so there will be a lot of shade on your way. Most of the time you will go down the hill.
Finally you will end up in the pretty village of Teror. Its historical center was declared a historical and cultural heritage and it is considered to be the best preserved center on the island. It is important also for the religious reasons. In the 15th century an icon of the Virgin appeared on the pine tree here. Later on a church was constructed on the same place and became the most important pilgrimage place of the Canary islands.
