Emilio Fariña, insular director of Planning of the Territory and Historical Heritage, has announced the launch of the Guided Routes through our historical heritage in order to «offer the possibility of knowing the history behind the corners to travel through the center of five municipalities of the insular geography ». Likewise, a free bus service is planned from the capital of Tenerife.
The first of the routes will take place on the 30th under the name La Villa and Puerto de Garachico, an architecture in the face of adversity. Registration is now open and will last for three hours. It aims to show why Garachico was the nerve center of commerce as one of the most important ports on the island in the 16th century. The second route, The splendor of the Port of La Orotava: the 18th century, will take place on November 13. It aims to show how, after the difficulties in Garachico, buried by the Trevejo or Arenas Negras volcano in 1706, the old Puerto de Arautapala re-emerged. “Given what is happening on La Palma, we believe that it may be important to know that part of our history” says Fariña. Passing the hallway, the patios of the old Realejo de Arriba is planned on November 14 by a historical complex that preserves a considerable number of traditional houses.
On November 21, Singularities of a Historical Complex will arrive: Icod de los Vinos through the center of a municipality that preserves architectural typologies to take a tour of the different artistic styles from the seventeenth to the twentieth century.
