If you want to feel the historical glory then you have to be at the Pyramids of Guimar. This 19th century natural complex with six freestanding mysterious pyramids is impressive. Located in the east of Tenerife, this mysterious pyramidal structure attracts history buffs looking for answers on its origins. If we follow local stories, some say it was built by locals for the worship of the summer solstice and others link it to the secret Freemason ritual.
