El Médano

Come and visit one of the region’s most beautiful beaches. Located in Southern Tenerife, in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona, it’s a beach where you can enjoy different water activities or enjoy a day out with your family while you observe the views of the volcanic cone of Montaña Roja. If you are lucky, you can catch the Windsurfing and Kitesurfing World Cup during your visit to this beautiful spot.


Garachico is located in the region of Icod-Date-Isla Baja, in north-west Tenerife, a spectacular municipality declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1994 thanks to its Sixteenth and Seventeenth-century architectonic heritage. The area is known for the natural pools of El Caletón and for the stunning views made up of Canarian pine trees, volcanic landscape, an ancient cliff, banana plantations and a marina among many other points of interest.

Icod de los Vinos

Discover the ancient dragon tree and travel back in time while enjoying a natural wonder of 800 years of age. It is the largest and oldest in the world, standing at 59 ft. and with a perimeter of 65 feet. If you travel to north-western Tenerife, stop in this town and visit the beach of San Marcos and Cueva del Viento.

Orotava Valley

Visit the largest municipality on the island and enjoy its civil and religious architecture. Its variety and wealth is so impressive that its old town was named a Historical-Artistic Site and European Cultural Heritage Protection Inventory. We recommend that you stop and visit the convent of San Antonio Abad, the churches of San Juan, La Concepción, San Agustín and Santo Domingo; the houses of Los Balcones and Lercaro, Hijuela del Botánico, Jardín Victoria and Liceo Taoro.

100 great mysteries of Africa

One can literally list on the fingers of the ancient authors whose works contain any detailed references to the Canary Islands. Pliny the Elder, Diodorus Siculus, Pseudo-Aristotle, Plutarch, Pomponius Mela, Homer, Hesiod, Rufius Festus Avien, Seneca… There may be other information, but they are already secondary and later in relation to these “classics of ancient Canarian studies.”

“Seven islands, the conquest of which caused so much noise, seven islands forgotten by the whole world – only fragments of a large continent that attracted the attention of ancient historians,” wrote the French geographer Bory-de-Saint-Vincent in 1803 in the book ” Happy Islands. Some atlantologists (specialists or amateurs searching for the legendary continent of Plato) tend to consider St. Vincent a supporter of the so-called Atlantic theory of the origin of the Canarians (we have already talked about it) and see in the expression “fragments of a large continent” a direct reference to Atlantis. But alas, they had to abandon their “bold constructions.” Vincent meant “only” Africa. That same Africa, with which the entire ancient and subsequent history of the Canary Islands is connected with strong ties …

Dragon tree, representative of the Canarian relict flora

So, Pliny the Elder, Natural History.

“… Not exactly rumors about the islands of Mauritania. Some, as it became known quite recently, lie against the land of autolols, they were discovered by Yuba, who opened workshops for dyeing fabrics with Getul purple … ”Here we need to make the first footnote. Numidian ruler Yubu II, who lived in the 1st century BC. BC e., often mentioned by ancient authors. The territory of his possessions adjoined the Atlantic coast at the same latitude as the Canaries, and who, if not him, knew better about what was happening on the islands. Unfortunately, Yuba himself did not leave any written evidence, and we learn about his visits to the islands from ancient authors.

“Here are the results of the investigations of Yuba in the Fortunate Isles,” continues Pliny. “He places them at the center of the sunset, 625,000 paces from the Purple Isles. The first one, called Ombrios, bears no traces of buildings, in the mountains there is a pond and trees that look like ferula …

… Another island is called Junonia; there is only a small temple built of stones. With it in the neighborhood of the same name is a smaller island; then – Capraria, which is full of large lizards. In view of these islands lies the mist-shrouded island of Ninguaria, which takes its name from the permanently lying snow.

The nearest island is called Canaria, because of the many huge dogs, two of which were delivered to Yuba; there you can see traces of buildings. Abounding, along with all other islands, with many fruits and birds of all kinds, this island is also rich in palm groves that bring dates, as well as cedars. There is a lot of honey on it … “

Whether these islands were inhabited by that time or not – Yuba does not report, but mentions large buildings and dogs. Is it possible to try to bring them into line with today’s names? Recall R. Hennig’s remark: “The names assigned to the same island were most often considered by cartographers as the names of different islands.” So, Capraria, Pliny’s Goat Island, identical to the island of Fuerteventura, often appeared on nautical charts at various points as the mysterious island “de las cabras”. Finally, it even became the island of Sao Miguel from the Azores group! But no goats or any mammals were found here. So any attempt to create a strict picture of the names of the islands is doomed to failure.

It is also known about Yuba that he established the production of purple on the islands. According to the English historian E. Banbury, the purple workshops (there will be a story about them later) could be located on two eastern islands – Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Nivaria, apparently, is Tenerife, because its snowy peak – Teide Peak – is visible in sunny weather even from the mainland. The most fertile of all is Canaria. Now it is called Gran Canaria. Junonia is Palma, or Fuerteventura again. Capraria is again Fuerteventura.

The islands got their name allegedly thanks to large dogs (canis in Latin) delivered to Yuba. Why allegedly – find out below.

And a little more about names. Here is the latest information received from canary linguists. Gran Canaria was called “Tibisena” before the capture (from the Berber mussen – “wolf”). Ferro Island – “Erbane” (from the Berber arban – “goat”). Lanzarote -~ “Anzar” (from the Berber anzar – “rain”). Here again some confusion arose among the ancient authors. A. Galindo says that the old name of Fuerteventura – Erbania – arose from the large amount of greenery on the island (hairbe – greenery). It seems to us more likely that the origin of the word “Erbania” from the Berber arban, as in the case of Ferro.

Now a word to Diodorus Siculus (“Historical Library”):

“In the middle of the ocean opposite Africa is an island distinguished by its size. It is located from Africa at a distance of only a few days by sea … The Phoenicians, who explored … the coast on the other side of the Pillars and sailed along the coast of Africa, were carried by strong winds far into the ocean. After long days of wandering, they finally reached the named island.

Who are “they”? Who did Diodorus mean? Carthaginian admiral Hanno, who came down in the VI century. BC e. to the Gulf of Guinea, or its predecessors? Or maybe followers? But we only know about Hanno… One thing is clear – the Canary Islands attracted the Phoenicians with their natural gifts, in particular, litmus dyes. In ancient times, there were few such stable dyes. The production of the famous Tyrian purple is still shrouded in mystery. Meanwhile, in the Canary Islands, the orsel lichen (Rocella tinctoria), which contains a high quality dye, grew and grows. In antiquity and the Middle Ages, it was called “orizello grass” …

What if this lichen is connected to the mystery of Tyrian purple production? In addition to orcel, the Canary Islands had another, no less valuable dye – the resin of the dragon tree, dracaena. And they also mined purple clams there. To which of them the islands owe their name “Purple”? Not yet known. Maybe once again there was confusion and the Purple Islands are not these at all?

The great importance of purple in the ancient world is well known, shades of this dye ranged from red to purple, and it was used to dye silk and cotton. Homer mentioned the purple robes of Andromache. The peculiarity of the purple substance is that, when extracted from the gland, it has a white or pale yellow color, but exposed to the sun, it first becomes lemon yellow, and then greenish, and, having already passed through the green stage, turns into purple. The more it is exposed to sunlight, the darker it becomes. Shades of purple depend on the layer of paint and how it is applied. Usually, experts took the dye from the part of the mantle where it was produced, and applied it to the fabric with an elastic brush.

The discovery of purple has always been attributed to the Phoenicians, more precisely, Melkart, who, according to legend, was the first to get the shells of purple snails. In the ports of Phoenicia, piles of purple shells are found today. However, the coast of Syria could not withstand the “purple onslaught”. It is known that each purple gives only a few drops of the precious liquid. And the Phoenicians began to look for a cluster of shells everywhere – first in the eastern Mediterranean, then in the west, they went beyond Gibraltar, having founded, according to Pliny, about 300 settlements. Then there were reports of Getulian purple.

Getuls were called shepherd tribes who lived south of the Roman possessions in Africa. Some of them – Baniurs and Autolols, according to Pliny again, lived on the ocean coast in the Atlas region. Pomponius Mela wrote that among the Negrites and the Gaetuli, a purple is produced, which gives a beautiful color, known in the world.

Under the penultimate ruler of Mauritania Yuba II, the production of Getul purple reached its peak. It was then that Yuba ordered the construction of dyers on the Purple Isles. Pliny was never able to say exactly which islands he was talking about. The only thing he claimed was that “from these islands it was possible to get to the Happy Isles with relative ease.”

Today, Moroccan archaeologists have unmistakably determined their location – directly opposite Cape Mogador. Now of them only the island of Mogador is distinguishable, the rest have been eaten by erosion, the ocean and sands. But the purple ones remained here: local women collect them and use them for food. In addition, coins of Yuba II and fragments of amphoras were found on the island, which confirms the presence of settlements here. A Byzantine seal dating back to the era after Justinian, who liberated North Africa from the vandals, was also found right there. But in the IV century. the dye-works fell into disrepair, and Isidore of Seville in the 6th century. writes about purple as “the only quality in this world.” Knowledge about Africa has suddenly narrowed.

The word of Pseudo-Aristotle: “They say that on the other side of the Pillars of Hercules the Carthaginians discovered in the ocean an uninhabited island, rich in many forests and navigable rivers, and possessing fruits in abundance. It is located several days away from the mainland. But when the Carthaginians began to visit it often, and some of them, because of the fertility of the soil, settled there, the Sufetes of Carthage, on pain of death, forbade traveling to this island. They exterminated the inhabitants so that the news of the islands would not spread … “

So, the first mention of the inhabitants. True, it is not clear on which of the seven islands of the archipelago they lived. And again an indication of the Carthaginian power. We will definitely return to the voyages of the Phoenicians, especially the Carthaginians, only a little later.

Plutarch “Biographies”: “… There are two of them. They are separated from each other by a narrow strait, lie 10,000 stadia from the African coast, and are called the Isles of the Blessed. The islands enjoy a favorable climate due to their temperature and the absence of various changes in the seasons.

Information is rather modest. In addition, we can cite the mention of Homer, made in the epigraph, and one more evidence – about Atlanta, a mountain giant, standing in the extreme West directly against the Hesperides (“Odyssey”, canto I, ch. 52-54). The Hesperides, according to the myths of Hercules, guarded the golden apples. It can be assumed that the basis for this version could be the fruits of the Canarian strawberry tree (Arbutus canariensis) orange-yellow in color, similar to dogwood.

We also mention Pomponius Mela “On the Position of the Earth”: “Against the part of the coast scorched by the sun lie islands belonging, according to stories, to the Hesperides.”

Near the Hesperides is located, according to the legend, Atlant supporting the sky, to whom “the seas are guided”. Apparently, it rises directly from the sea. A. Humboldt put forward a version that Atlant is the peak of Teide on the island of Tenerife (3710 meters above sea level), visible from Cape Bojador, that is, from the mainland. These data are quite plausible. And the strange ancient legend that the giant Garion was buried under a tree from which blood was dripping also finds a clear explanation, it is enough to recall the dracaena emitting red resin . ..

But let’s get back to the classics of ancient geography.

Rufio Festus Avien “Seashores”: “And further into the sea lies an island; it is rich in herbs and dedicated to Saturn. So violent is his nature of strength that if anyone, swimming past him, approaches him, the rest of the sea heaves, deeply trembling, while the rest of the sea remains calm as a pond.

Surely this is about the island of Tenerife and its volcano Teide. The fact is that there are similar descriptions in the text that has come down to us through the millennia since the expedition of Gannon. The Carthaginian admiral, traveling south along the northwestern coast of Africa, also described similar eruptions.

The references given here to the Canary Islands in antiquity are only a small part of the numerous testimonies that have come down to us. To put an ellipsis at the end of our story, let’s ask one more question, the answer to which is still unanswered. Let us again give the floor to Pliny: “Shortly after Roman rule was established in Mauritania, Suetonius Peacock (governor) organized an expedition into the interior of the country – this was the first penetration of the Romans into the Atlas Mountains.
