Treasures in an arid land
On our route through Fasnia and Arico we will visit two municipalities in southern Tenerife marked by their rural characteristics and architectural, geological and ethnographic beauty.
Herques Ravine Natural Monument
Location: Carretera General del Sur (TF. 28) Km. 48,3
Archifira or Chifira Recreational Area
Location: Calle Apartadero de Chifira o Archifira, s/n.
The historic centre of Arico El Nuevo, declared Heritage of Cultural Interest, is located between the ravines of La Atalaya and Lere, in an area known as El Lomo de La Quinta, the Ridge of La Quinta. Its rich architectural legacy is represented by the traditional homes, quite typical of the midlands southern of the island. They constitute a relevant sample of rural and country life, especially of the more affluent social groups.
