From Garachico our excursion will continue to Masca Village – our last point.
Masca is a remote village, located high in the mountains, on the upper part of the Masca Valley. It is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Tenerife. This little village with only about 100 habitants conserved absolutely authentic atmosphere of an old Canarian village.
It is hard to believe, but until 1960 it even didn’t have any road connections and was almost unaccessible for people from outside. You will definitely enjoy this authentic Canarian atmosphere and spectacular mountain views.
