What to do and what to see in Costa Adeje
- Museum of Sacred Art in Adeje: Of the Franciscan Convent of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y San Pablo, which now houses the Adeje Town Hall, only the church remains. It used to be a school and dry fruit storage facility, but today it is a museum that displays a collection of sacred art, including Gobelins tapestries.
- Taucho hamlet: In an exceptional location, almost one thousand metres high, between La Fuente and El Yé ravines, this hamlet has the typical rural architecture of the Canaries, plus evidence of the presence of aboriginal settlers.
- Church of Santa Úrsula: This Mudejar building stands in the beautiful village of Adeje. It was a simple shrine in the past, but it was enlarged thanks to the religious fervour of the laity. Now it has two naves, one of them dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary; the second nave and the main chapel were added in the seventeenth century.
- Adeje Library: It was founded only a decade ago, but its collection includes historical documents about Adeje. The library has two sections: the Fortress Archives and the Municipal Archives.
- Jungle Park: The park is home to the rich native flora of the south of Tenerife and to more than 300 exotic bird species. From it you can enjoy the Adeje massif and El Infierno ravine.
