San Roque Hotel, Garachico, Tenerife
The Hotel San Roque is located in the village of Garachico in the northwest of the island of Tenerife and only a few meters from the Atlantic Ocean and near to Mount Teide.
The Hotel is an important house which was built towards the end of the 18th century by a descendant of the aristocratic Genoan Cristobal de Ponte, founder of the town and port of Garachico. The conservation of this historic building, with its grand and elegant architectural designs, now offers a glimpse of Garachico’s past, conveying its tradition and history, as well as an innovative and free spirit in its use of contemporary designs and works of art.

Contemporary art and tradition, modern design and history exist side by side at the Hotel.
