The best rated experiences in Tinajo

Tinajo has a wide variety of experiences, from hiking trails into the heart of nature and tourist hotspots where you can find out more about the island’s history and culture. The Plaza de San Roque, in the heart of the town of Tinajo, is the focal point of the town’s main activities. It is surrounded by the townhall, bars, shops, and the San Roque church. If you want to continue to explore the island’s traditions, we suggest discovering its farmers’ market which is held every Saturday morning at Mancha Blanca.

In the town of Mancha Blanca you can also visit the Los Dolores Chapel, built in 1781 which also has a curious historical fact: it has a cross that points towards the direction in which the lava went to avoid the chapel. To end the day, there is no place better that the Guiguan Viewpoint, in the south of the municipality, on the way up to Mancha Blanca. By the viewpoint you’ll also see the Bodegas Guiguan, the perfect place to enjoy the sunset with a glass of the island’s wine
