What to expect

The Ethnographic Park Pirámides de Güímar is a 64000 m2 site of great cultural value, which comprises six stepped pyramids that have been studied by archaeologists around the world, led by the famous Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl.

The park includes the Casa Chacona Museum, which shows the results of the investigations carried out in the pyramid complex, its astronomical alignment with summer and winter solstices, and one of the largest photographic collections of stepped pyramids in the world. Visitors can also visit the Auditorium, showing a documentary about the pyramids and the research of Dr. Thor Heyerdahl, the Expeditions room, with information and reproductions of the ships used by Heyerdahl in his transoceanic voyages, and a larger reproduction of the Ra II.

The Pyramids: Visitors continue their tour along a path which runs close to the pyramids, enabling all the construction details to be admired such as the meticulous shaping of the stones making up the structures, the precise proportions of the steps leading up to the top level, the volcanic origin of the stones and the perfect astronomical orientation.

The Botanical Route and the Exportation Products Route are part of more than 20000 m2 of Canarian gardens. To complete the visit, there is also a Cultural Route, which offers information on many aspects of culture, history and ethnography of the Canary Islands.

The exhibition “Rapa Nui. Polynesia: Extreme Survival”, developed by the “Mata Ki Te Rangi” Foundation (Easter Island) aims to raise awareness of one of the most amazing and exciting stories in the world: the achievements of the Polynesian society.
