Tacoronte Town Council organises guided tours for visitors and locals to discover its historic quarter. The tour will show you around the Santísimo Cristo de los Dolores shrine, the former San Agustín convent, La Alhóndiga (the Corn Exchange), El Calvario, Hamilton Park, the parish church of Santa Catalina Mártir de Alejandría, and the Agua García forest, which was declared a Protected Landscape in 1994 and is one of the Canary Islands' most important expanses of Monteverde (laurel forest). Here, you can visit the Heritage Information Centre and take some of the trails through the forest.
The coast is guarded by cliffs and provides the perfect blend of traditional fishing culture in the El Pris area and beach tourism and leisure in Mesa del Mar.
