A sleepy backwater with a glorious past. Garachico was founded in 1496 by Cristos del Pone.

Situated in the north it was the main port and trade centre especially for wine, amongst its most famous was Malmansay immortalised in Shakespears Richard 3rd.

In 1706 the town was devastated by a huge volcanic eruption that overwhelmed it and partially buried the town and blocked the harbour, without it the inhabitants were forced to fall back on the past traditional methods of making a living namely fishing and farming, which for us today means that we can enjoy some of the islands best fish, Shellfish and wine.

The buildings left untouched by the eruptions are partially noteworthy like the Castle San Miguel (1517), the convents of San Fransisco and Santa Domingo dated around the 16th and 17th century.

The many fine mansions built by the wealthy merchants of the town during its flourishing hay-day and The Parish Church with its collection of paintings and religious sculptures are well worth a visit.

Although there is no beach the area is dotted with pools created by the molten lava flowing into the sea perfect for a dip after exploring this unspoiled town.

Garachico past and present is one of Tenerife's Gems.
