Description

This trail links the area of La Pina with El Palmar, passing through the abandoned settlement of Talavera and its beautiful views over the valley.  

It starts in La Pina and climbs up the cobbled path that is still intact today and which formed part of the old footpath that linked Talavera with Los Silos. 

The slope becomes steeper at Lomo de Los Cardones, where you will begin to enjoy magnificent panoramic views of Isla Baja. 

The trail then leads to Casas de Talavera, old abandoned farmhouses of traditional Canarian architecture. From this point, the highest point on the route, you will be rewarded with outstanding views of Monte del Agua, the Palmar Valley and Cumbre del Baracán. 

From here the path descends gradually until it reaches the Plaza de Las Libreas in the centre of El Palmar, the end of the route.

Tips

  • Always stay on the marked trail and do not enter private property, hunting grounds, water galleries, wells or caves.
  • Pay special attention when crossing or walking along trails used by bicycles, horses or motor vehicles and when walking in ravines with water courses.
  • Avoid direct encounters with potentially dangerous animals, such as livestock, beehives, and dogs. 
  • Proceed with caution and watch for obstacles, loose rocks, uneven terrain or steep slopes to avoid accidents and falls. 
  • Check out our guide to hiking in Tenerife and, if necessary, contact the emergency services by calling 112.
