Los Cristianos

Los Cristianos is a town on the south coast of the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, west of North West Africa into the Atlantic Ocean. The town has a population of 19,500 inhabitants.

The port of Los Cristianos already existed in the 16th century, but there was not much habitation until the late 19th century. In 1880 there were only 30 houses. Rapid growth of the site began after 1955, after the Swede Bengt Rylander found out that his disease, multiple sclerosis, was better to handle at Los Cristianos. Many Swedes then came to the place for the cure of their rheumatic symptoms. There are still some Swedish street names and the Swedish Lutheran church is still to be found at the seafront. In the 1960s, the place rapidly grew with residential towers to comfort the many tourists visiting the place.

Los Cristianos has two beaches. The Playa de Los Cristianos, near the harbor, and in the next bay the Playa de la Vistas. The sand of the region is still known for its healing properties. It contains radioactive mineral grains, which have a curative effect on arthritis and rheumatism. Golf courses, the Aqua Park and the Tenerife Zoo are not far from these beaches.

From Los Cristianos you can use the free shuttle bus to Aqualand Costa Adeje. A water park with several attractions, fantastic place to have fun. There is also a dolphinarium.

A free shuttle bus connects to the Jardins del Atlantico Bananera, a banana farm. The trip will teach you how bananas and many other topical plants are cultivated. The irrigation system on the island is clearly clarified in an information centre.

Popular day trips from Los Cristianos are the ferries and hydrofoils in the direction of the islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro.

In the Cactus Park plant and animal lovers can have their day out. There are about 30,000 plant species and many animal species to admire.

In Valle San Lorenzo you can visit the Centro de Oquideas, an orchid park with more than 100 species of orchids and many tropical plants.

Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary Islands and is located 200 km west of Morocco. The island has a population of 900,000 and is the most densely populated of the archipelago. Like the neighboring islands it is of volcanic origin. The original inhabitants, the Guanches lived in caves and embalmed their dead. Remains of mummies have shown that the Guanches had their roots in the Berber people of North West Africa.
