An Overview: What to see, things to do, the weather and the best hotels Garachico
The name Garachico means “small island”, a term from the language of the canary indigenous people (Guanches). But it is actually a village in the north-west of Tenerife. Once this was the economic centre of the Canaries. The town, including the port, was almost completely destroyed by lava masses in the 17th century. After its reconstruction, only the monastery church of San Francisco remained. Today Garachico is especially popular with culture lovers.
