Restaurant
“A ‘tasca’ is a tavern or bar, especially one serving food. Great Canarian and Spanish cuisine is served in this little gem of a restaurant, which is tucked away inside a cave, built into the side of a quarry, hence the name (‘cantera’ means quarry). ”

Restaurant
“Another favourite ‘tasca’ of ours! This one serves great and authentic Canarian food at unbeatable prices. Astrid Oheim, the chef and owner, is German, but in her own words, “she’s more Canarian than gofio”. ”

Museum
“The Granadilla History Museum offers visitors a detailed record of local history. In its various exhibition rooms you can see objects from the municipality that authentically represent the lifestyle of the Guanches (aboriginal Berber inhabitants of the Canary Islands) who lived in the ‘menceyato’ (kingdom) of Abona. Of great interest is the exhibition room dedicated to ancient burial rites.”

Church
“Está considerada como una de las Iglesias más importantes del sur de la isla de Tenerife y destaca por su torre de inspiración morisca y por su portada barroca del Siglo XVIII. Inicialmente fue construida en 1617, pero en 1645 fue demolida para reconstruirla. Desafortunadamente la Iglesia sufrió un gran un incendio que la destruyó, pero sus cimientos sirvieron para edificar la actual Iglesia de San Antonio de Padua en 1711. Su torre fue la ultima en edificarse mediante una reforma en 1886. La Iglesia de San Antonio de Padua consta de una sola nave amplia, de cruz latina. Cuenta con una cubierta típica en las iglesias canarias, y en su interior alberga retablo, tallas e imágenes .”

Locality
“Granadilla de Abona is one of the most beloved municipalities of Tenerife, located in the south of the island, occupying an area of 155 km2. The municipality extends from ‘Guajara’ (the second highest mountain on the island, after ‘El Teide’) to the Atlantic Ocean. Tenerife South Airport is located in this municipality, as well as the seaside village of El Medano (Spanish for ‘The Sand Dune’), where many important windsurfing competitions are held. La Montaña Roja (‘The Red Mountain’), a volcanic cone located in El Medano, has been declared protected natural reserve, along with five other ‘espacios naturales’, which together comprise 25% of the municipality’s geography. Abona was the name of a Guanche (aboriginal Berber inhabitants of the Canary Islands) ‘menceyato’ (meaning ‘kingdom’), that existed in this region of the island at the time of Spanish conquest in the late fifteenth century. Founded around 1445, Abona was ruled by Atguaxoña, son of Axerax. It extended from the Rio de Chasna to Adeje, from the Barranco de Herques to Güimar. The Spanish name ‘Granadilla’ was not added until the end of the 16th century, but the European-led settlement of the area began at the time of conquest.”
