Canary Islands Things to Do: 239 reviews and 214 photos


This town, named after French conquerer Bethencourt, is located in the very center of the island. This land is particularly fertile, which may be the reason why the island's original population, the Guanches, founded their first important settlement here. In the town's Archaeological Museum you can see highly interesting remains of this original civilization.
As well interesting is the artistically very valuable Cathedral, built in 1410, with beautiful works in Mudejar-style and painted choir-stalls of the wood of the canarian pine.
