Access to the Anaga Rural Park by San Andrés, fishing district of the capital, which is also known for the artificial sand beach of Las Teresitas. We will approach the viewpoint of Suculum and return to take the Bailadero road, direction to Taganana. In this area we can see typical farmhouses of the nineteenth century, and also very interesting farming sites, as they are very steep due to the steepness of the terrain. Very humid areas due to the permanent impact of the trade winds, keep the Laurisilva in a good state of preservation, which is the vegetation that we could previously find throughout the southern part of Europe, now only in the Canary Islands and the Portuguese islands of Madeira and the Azores. Once reached the tunnel that crosses the mountain, we can see the steepest landscape of the island, because, like on the coast of the Rural Park of Teno, is the oldest area of Tenerife. We will take a walk through the center of the town, and then we will go to see the black sand beaches of Benijos and Almáciga, being able to bathe in its beaches, if the force of the sea allows it to us.
Once dry, we will go back to San Cristóbal de La Laguna, and there we will appreciate the enchantment of its classic environment, with large walls and bejeques roofs, as well as walking through the oldest streets of the island, as this was the first capital of the island and maintains that stately aspect of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
