The town of Giants (Los Gigantes) is named after the surrounding rocks, rising nearly 1000 meters. You can walk through the town in five minutes, which does not prevent it from being a remarkable place that it is.
In the old days water was the only way connecting people living in different lands. And it always was a major source of life.
The heart of this town is its port. A portal. A door.
A starting and departure point. People come back here to replenish their supplies before weighing the anchor again.

All you have to tell the taxi driver is: “to the Port of Los Gigantes, please”

Once the island was home to the enigmatic civilization of Guanches. They went extinct after the Canaries were conquered by Europeans.

The waters around the island are one of the eternal global “capitals” of cetaceans.
