PLACES OF INTEREST IN SAN MIGUEL DE ABONA
from the interior of the island of Tenerife to the sea.
SAN MIGUEL HISTORICAL COMPLEX
From the Church to the Captain's House
The quiet, simple and close character of the inhabitants of the interior of the island of Tenerife is also perceptible in the architecture and urban planning of its villages.
The Conjunto Histórico de San Miguel shines for its simplicity. Most of its buildings are domestic constructions of rural character that reflect the link that people have had with the land.
Along Iglesia Street we find houses of different sizes, heights and colors that transport us to other centuries.
Among the most interesting buildings are the Church of San Miguel Arcángel and the Library, both from the 18th century. The house of Juan Bethencourt Alfonso, an important physician and historian, and the Casa del Capitán, a rural hacienda converted into an ethnographic museum.
From the royal road in the middle distance to the blue of the sea
San Miguel is a town of contrasts, it has mountains and sea, and it has a mild and stable climate throughout the year that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities.
On the coast there are numerous coves, such as Montaña Amarilla, where you can enjoy the sun and the sea. It also has golf courses and a marina, where you can practice water sports such as scuba diving, sport fishing or recreational activities such as jet ski rides.
The environment is unique. It is ideal for cycling, hiking or trekking, as the municipality has a wide network of marked trails and paths for these activities.
