If you are planning your Los Silos holidays, the following information may help by giving you an overview of the resort.
Los Silos lies on the northwest coast of Tenerife in an area known as Isla Baja, or the Lowlands. Los Silos lies between Garachico and Buenavista del Norte and is a picturesque town with pretty plazas, traditional architecture and narrow cobbled streets.
Named after 3 grain silos built here in the 15th century, Los Silos initially grew wealthy on the production of cereals and later, on sugar production.
Along the coast there are numerous coves and beaches and a large municipal swimming pool between the rocks and the suburb. From the church in the village square of Los Silos, you can follow pathways up into the mountains and through the banana plantations up to the lost village. Here the views, flowers and wildlife all combine to create spectacular views.
What to do on your Los Silos holidays
Los Silos hosts the International Story Telling Festival each December – one of the most intriguing fiestas on Tenerife.
Nuestra Senora de la Luz
A 16th century church which appeared on the front cover of Living Tenerife in December 2005. Inside the church, windows allow the sun to flood in, illuminating the altars and statues. It was damaged by fire but has been fully restored. Adjoining the church there is a small visitor centre where you can pick up a walking guide for the area and lots of information on Los Silos.
Los Silos Town Hall
Facing the square – go inside and upstairs you will find an enclosed wooden balcony and the extremely valuable Gothic Tableau of “The Martydom of San Sebastian”.
