Vilaflor

The open, friendly and tranquil mountain municipality of Vilaflor is one of the highest in Spain. As the historical centre of the region of Chasna, Vilaflor has preserved its traditions and picturesque charm thanks to its location high in the mountains on the road to Mt Teide. The area has also not experienced the same degree of tourist development as the coastal areas have. Its mountain location and the surrounding nature has made Vilaflor a refuge of peace and tranquillity; a refuge that still has a lot to offer in the way of sporting, educational and youth activities; a refuge that constantly promotes culture and traditions.

Tacoronte

Set on mountainous terrain, the steep slopes of the municipality of Tacoronte often separate one district from the next.
