Taganana is a picturesque village located in the Anaga Rural Park, in the district of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. To get to Taganana take the road to El Bailadero from San Andrés (a small fishing town seven kilometres from the capital). Taganana is hidden away in a small steep valley and like the rest of the villages in Anaga, preserves the traditions and architecture from the island's past. Another way to get there is via the Las Mercedes Mountains in La Laguna.

Among its few buildings, Taganana has a small church in honour of "Nuestra Señora de las Nieves." It is one of the oldest churches on the island and inside there is an authentic artistic treasure, a valuable triptych by the 16th century Flemish school. Surrounding the village, there is the natural beauty of the Anaga Massif with its leafy laurisilva forests, deserted beaches and spectacular rocks.
