What to expect

The Ethnographic Park Pirámides de Güímar is a 64,000 m2 site of great cultural value, which comprises six stepped pyramids that have been studied by archaeologists from around the world, led by the famous Norwegian anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl.

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

The Pyramids: Visitors will continue the tour along a path which runs close to the pyramids, enabling you to admire all the details of the construction, such as the meticulous shape of the stones that make up the structures, the precise proportions of the steps that lead at the upper level, the volcanic origin of the stones and the perfect astronomical orientation.

The park offers many outdoor routes to explore:

The Cultural Route: This route offers information on many aspects of the culture, history and ethnography of the Canary Islands during the 500 years since its conquest, such as: agriculture, craftsmanship, use of water in Tenerife, traditional costumes of the islands, Gofio (Canarian flour), mythology, famous visitors to Tenerife, the conquest of Tenerife, emigration, livestock and fishing, traditional sports and lizards.

The Botanical Route and the Exportation Products Route are part of more than 20000 m2 of Canarian gardens where you can discover the nature of the Canary Islands and can see what kinds of products that are vital for exportation.

You will also be able to discover the exhibition 'Rapa Nui. Polynesia: Extreme Survival', developed by the Mata Ki Te Rangi Foundation (Easter Island) aims to raise awareness about one of the most amazing and exciting stories in the world: the achievements of Polynesian society.
