What are the Pyramids of Guimar?

Located in the municipality of the same name, the Pyramids of Güímar are one of the most enigmatic ethnographic parks in Tenerife. 

In the past, it was thought that these stepped constructions were built by the aborigines of the Canary Islands, the Guanches. However, the latest research has shown that these pyramids actually date back to the 19th century. But the question is, who built them and why?

During your visit to the ethnographic park, you can find out more about the origins of the pyramids by visiting the Casa Chacona Museum. You'll also be able to enter the expedition room and a small auditorium where you'll enjoy a documentary that will help you to learn about the many other investigations of Thor Heyerdahl, the founder of the park. 

The Pirámides de Güímar is also a botanical garden. In the Sustainable Garden you'll find a reproduction of a Canarian ravine with its typical flora. On the other hand, the Poisonous Garden will amaze you with its more than 70 species of toxic plants brought from different parts of the planet.
