Icod de los Vinos


The Dragon Tree of Icod, in the town centre, is a majestic example and the oldest of its kind known. It is estimated to be between 600 and 800 years old. The perimeter of the base measures 12 metres and the total height of the tree exceeds 14 metres.

The Cueva del Viento cave is the second largest volcanic cavity in the world, with more than 17 kilometres of explored passages. It is a complex volcanic tube, with several exits. The internal layout is highly complex, with a wide range of geomorphic structures and highly original fauna, both living and fossilised. There are other extensive caves to be found in different parts of the borough, such as San Marcos, Pnto Blanco, El Rey, Felipe Reventón, etc.

The Corona Forestal Nature Park includes one of the largest remaining pine forests in all the Canary Islands, in the southern sector of the borough.

El Lagar is a recreation area and camp site, where summer camps are organised for children. To get there, you take the La Guancha - Casa Forestal track and take the second dirt track on the right. Las Hayas (or El Pino de la Pipa) is another recreation area and camp site, which can be reached from Icod, via Barrio Redondo, following a dirt track. (To stay overnight, you need a permit from the Department of the Environment of the Island Cabildo).

The protected natural area of Acantilados de Los Silos, El Tanque, Garachico and Icod is an area of great scenic interest and the natural habitat of many species of plants and animals, especially birds.
