Duration: 1.5 hours
The connected villages of La Hoya, Hoya Grande and Tijoco Bajo in the Adeje municipality seem modest everyday residential communities, but there is always something to catch your eye when you leave your car and take a slow wander around a place. Although there is a short section involving a steep slope at the mid-point on the walk in Tijoco Bajo this is essentially an easy stroll. Easily overlooked, these three little villages are now wedged between the TF-82, the old main road to Guia de Isora, above, and the new three-lane TF-1 autopista, below. There are three little churches enroute and some good views down to the south-west coast, the island of La Gomera, and up to Montaña Tejina and beyond. A large and colourful wall graphic between Hoya Grande and Tijoco Bajo depicts prickly pear cactus farming. There is a well-preserved old granary building in Tijoco Bajo, now operating as a rural museum.
