The excellent Canary Islands cuisine provides visitors with an insight into the islands' culture.
Situated a few kilometres inland from the Atlantic coastline, in the south of the island of Tenerife, is the town of Arona. Its historic quarter contains a wide repertoire of important examples of popular architecture integrated with the rural environment. Meanwhile, the beaches of Las Americas and Los Cristianos, as well as fishing villages such as Las Galletas, combine the traditions of the Canary Islands with leisure spaces and luxury housing developments. Similarly, the magnificent waters of the area and the sea bottom are perfect for practising nautical sports and submarinism.
Situated in the town of Arona is the hermitage of San Antonio Abad, which gave rise in the 17th century to this municipality on its separation from the neighbouring Vilaflor. Its parish church contains interesting carved images, the work of local image makers. These images include the carvings of the Virgen de la Concepcion, San Jose and the Cristo de la Salud. Whitewashed streets extend from this area, whilst the outlines of the volcanic mountains serve as their backdrop.
