The Piramides de Güimar Ethnographic Park (Pyramids of Güimar) is on the southeast coast of Tenerife, just 26km from Santa Cruz. The space is organised around large gardens, leisure areas, exhibitions, activities, open-air routes and much more.
Its main attraction consists of six stepped pyramids spread throughout an Ethnographic Park, which have led to various theories about their origins and age.
The mysteries aroused by speculation and a variety of hypotheses, in addition to the fact that their true origin remains unknown to this day, has resulted in a shadow of scepticism always hanging over these unusual pyramids.
But there’s more to the Ethnographic Park than its pyramids. As well as the Ethnographic Museum, which serves as an excellent source of knowledge of the history of the Canary Islands, it also has over 20,000m2 of native Canarian flora, making it a true botanical jewel. Furthermore, through various projects developed in partnership with the University of La Laguna, a series of exhibitions have been created that will satisfy every visitor’s cultural interests.
In any case, beyond the theories and debates, the Pirámides de Güímar are an excellent place to enjoy a day of cultural tourism outdoors while taking a break from sunbathing at the beach. We have no doubt at all that you’ll be surprised.
Opening hours and prices
The Piramides de Güimar are open Monday to Sunday from 10am to 6pm. The park is closed on 25th December and 1st January.
The ticket for unlimited access to all of the exhibitions is €18 for adults and €6.50 for children (7-12 years old).
