The December bridge It is the perfect time to recharge your batteries before approaching the Christmas dates, with the entrance to a new year. During Christmas, expenses usually double, which ends up leading to the well-known January cost.
If you are one of those beneficiaries who can enjoy several consecutive days off during the first full week of this December, perhaps you are interested in knowing a nearby place to go to disconnect and rest.
The perfect place for that is to discover the hidden areas of Anaga. One of the lungs of Tenerife hides different charming population centers, spread between Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna, and where you can rest and disconnect from the madding crowd of routine.
Places in Anaga to visit during the December long weekend:
One of the largest centers in Anaga is Taganana. In the middle of the mountain, among so much greenery, stands out a town of white houses that has several of the best beaches on the island.
It has one of the oldest churches in Tenerife, which dates back to the 16th century and is from the Flemish school: Nuestra Señora de las Nieves. Near Taganana you can find different hamlets, such as Roque de las Bodegas, El Draguillo or Las Palmas de Anagaor other more hidden places like Almáciga, which has an incredible beach.
Chamorga, Lomo de Las Bodegas, La Cumbrilla and Las Casillas They form the area known as Punta de Anaga.
In these places you can enjoy the classic Canarian rural architecture that is being lost. In addition, it has a network of paths and trails that serve to get to know one of the most important lungs of Tenerife from within.
Taborno and Afur
