Holiday in Fasnia, Tenerife

Fasnia Vacation at the south-east coast of Tenerife

Map Tenerife Fasnia is located at the foot of the volcanic mountain Montaña de Fasnia in an area of Tenerife that has almost been forgotten by tourists: the southeast coast of the island.

Fasnia is a good base from which to explore the south east coast and the much quieter hinterland.

The countryside around Fasnia is dotted with white hamlets and is home to species such as rock rose, cacti and pine trees.

These days the municipality of Fasnia is an important agricultural area, growing carnations, canary potatoes and tomatoes for export. Good quality wines are also produced in this area.


The History of Fasnia

The volcano Montaña de Fasnia erupted in 1705. To show their gratitude for their village being spared, the inhabitants established on the crest of the mountain the chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Dolores.

Tell them about the mummy, honey!

In 1770 the mummified bodies of several native Guanches were discovered in a cave in the nearby Herques gorge.

The mummified remains can be seen in the anthropological museum of Santa Cruz, some 40 kilometres away.
