Museo Arqueológico

Museum in Puerto de la Cruz

This small but well laid-out museum provides an insight into the Guanche way of life with its replicas of a typical cave dwelling, as well as a burial cave where pots and baked-clay adornments share the same burial area, demonstrating the Guanches’ belief in an afterlife. The most interesting exhibit is a tiny clay idol – one of only a few ever found.
