Pedro de Talavera was one of the conquerors of Tenerife in the fifteenth century. A now uninhabited hamlet hanging his name recalls that he once owned these domains. Those domains included spacious grounds for growing cereal and a big livestock cabine.
This hike starts in El Palmar, more specifically from the visitor center in Los Pedregales where you will enjoy a short video about Teno Rural Park. From Los Pedregales we will then go on to Talavera to descend to the enclave of Los Silos that lies dipped between mountains. Agricultural landscapes and a diverse vegetation of cacti, euphorbias, fayales and heathers can here be observed. The views over the Isla Baja are more than worthwhile and certainly a good reason to take this very pleasant excursion.
