Popular architecture, old tile ovens and tagoros have a great importance in this part of the hike. Once we reach Las Cuevas, the route continues downhill to Las Casas by an uneven terrain that sometimes shows the original cobblestone path. The enclave of Las Casas is located at the foot of the slopes of the Barranco and at the beginning of the Teno peninsula. Here you can see redoubts of the old traditional Canarian architecture. From here Punta de Teno can be reached directly, the most northwestern part of the island of Tenerife. Punta de Teno is located in the Teno Rural Park and from there one has spectacular panoramic views of the peninsula, the coast and lighthouse.
