Culture of stars
Tenerife’s beauty reaches its maximum splendour when night falls. Our mountains get a wonderful silver colour that spreads out like magic halos, falling from one of the world’s most beautiful skies.
In a night with no moonlight, anyone of us could count more than two thousand stars. Each one of them has been studied and observed for centuries by thousands of astronomers, whose only aim was to understand the laws ruling our universe. Sumerians, Egyptians, Greeks and Arabs, among many others, built the pillars of a brilliant culture to the stars. Now we are the heirs of that breath-taking culture.
Tenerife 100 Cultures will not only make you gaze at the stars, but read in them what our ancestors saw, battles between gods and mythological beings, fights involving heroes and legendary monsters, impossible love stories, tales from a thousand and one nights… Behind each one of these stars there is a passionate and long story that has been handed down through hundreds of generations. Our aim is to transmit that mind-blowing heritage to you…
