What to expect. A stunningly beautiful volcanic landscape, it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site - it's no surprise that it's the most popular attraction in Tenerife.

1: by cable car. Important: you need to obtain a permit, which you can do online for free at the Reservas de Parques Nacionales website.

- Tip: book your cable car ticket and permit for the afternoon, by which time the site is no longer attractive to most tourists.
Masca Pirate Village
What to expect: the road leads through traditional country houses to Masca, which is the best example of the wonders of rural architecture in Tenerife.
Local tour guides believe that Masca was the perfect hideout for pirates, where they surprised their rivals and captured their ships coming from the Americas.
- Tip: Arrive early as parking is limited and try the cactus ice cream.
Los Gigantes rock wall
What to expect: the Los Gigantes rock wall was formed during one of the first volcanic activities on the island. The island's indigenous people called it the Gates of Hell, because to them it symbolized the end of the world.
