Footpath located in Tenerife North

PR TF 51 San José de los Llanos - Punta de Teno. 
Stretch: Teno Alto - Teno Bajo
The track starts in the hamlet of Teno Alto, in a place known as Los Bailaderos, in the present path leading to "Las Cuevas" (caves) and passing south of El Vallado Mountain. In this first part of the track one cannot but admire the popular architecture, as well as old tile-ovens and "tagoros" (old meeting point of the idigenous peoples). Once in Las Cuevas, you keep going down to Las Casas through a most irregular terrain, where at times you may still see the original cobblestones.

Las Casas lies at the foot of the slopes of Barranco de Las Casas, at the beginning of the Teno peninsula. There are interesting remains of the Canarian traditional architecture. From this point you go straight to Punta de Teno, on the extreme north-west of the island, in the middle of the Natural Park of Teno and where you get dramatic views of the peninsula, coast and the lighthouse of Teno.
