Mirador Bailadero

All over the island, there are several spots known as “bailaderos” – dancing fields, roughly translated. History has it they would have served as sites for “guanches” or native Canarians to hold their rites, balls and other celebrations.

From this viewpoint the hamlet of Taganana can be made out. This is one of the most ancient human settlements on the island. It is also ideal for observing the abrupt geomorphology of the northern face of the Anaga mountain range.

Many paths that have been adapted as hiking trails start at this spot connecting it with Taganana, Almáciga and Punta de Anaga. It is located at the kilometre 11 of the TF-12 road within the Rural Park of Anaga.
