Overview

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 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 the sun during the 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. Heyerdahl, the Expeditions room, with information and reproductions of the boats used by Heyerdahl in his transoceanic voyages, and a large-scale reproduction of the Ra II; and a leisure area with cafeteria, souvenir shop and playroom. Three outdoor routes can also be discovered along the more than 20.000 m2 of endemic Canarian gardens: the Botanical Route, the Exportation Products Route and the Cultural Route, which offers information on many aspects of culture, history and ethnography of the Canary Islands.Furthermore, two new exhibitions have been inaugurated recently. On one hand, the Ethnographic Park is housing the exhibition “Rapa Nui. Polynesia: Extreme Survival”, developed by the ‘Mata Ki Te Rangi’ Foundation of Easter Island. The exhibit aims to raise awareness of one of the most extraordinary societies in the world and the achievements of this statue-building Polynesian society. The latest novelty at the Park is the Secret Garden, a 1500 m2 garden specialised on poisonous plants, comprising a selection of over 70 plant species that have toxic or dangerous properties. This ‘live exhibit’, unique in the Canary Islands, reviews the exciting history of poisons, and presents stories of some of the most notorious poisoners and deadly venoms of all times.

The museum and outside walk gives an interesting and good perpective of the Tenerife history, people and economic activity. The Piramides are, however, highly priced as if it would be an attaction, which is not the case
