Sicasumbre (English)


You are at the beginning of the black route to the Mirador de Sicasumbre, the green route to El Cardón, and the yellow route to the Virgen del Tanquito.

As you can see, at this point the three routes start, running parallel to each other to different points.

Starting with the black route, it separates from the others on the right at the Mirador.

The Mirador de Sicasumbre, located about 300 meters above sea level, is one of the best sky observation points you can find on the island. The beauty of the area is perfectly combined with the facilities provided by the viewpoint, from information through signposting to supports for those who wish to use their cameras and telescopes in comfort.

Continuing along the green route towards El Cardón, it turns off together with the yellow one to the right when you reach the Mirador Panorámico.

This turnoff will take you to Barranco de Chilegua. When you reach the FV-605, turn right onto the FV-618 and continue along the dirt road for a few metres to enter the Barranco de Montaña Hendida, a ravine that covers the municipalities of both Pájara and Tuineje.

On reaching the Camino de Tuineje, the green route continues until it meets the Barranco de Bácher ravine and continues along La Calabaza, turning right into Calle Cardón and arriving at the church.

As for the yellow route, it runs parallel to the green route and separates from it before reaching the Barranco de Bácher ravine, turning off to the right along the Camino La Calabaza and continuing again to the right along the Camino Cardón to the FV-618. From here continue along the road to the car park, and then take the Tanquito path to the Sanctuary of the Virgen del Tanquito.

The Virgen del Tanquito is a highly revered religious icon in our municipality, having its sanctuary in the Protected Natural Area of Montaña Cardón.

The story goes that at the beginning of the 20th century, some residents came to the area to excavate, creating a small tank from which to obtain water. One day, they discovered the figure of this Virgin on the wall and from that moment on, the sanctuary was created. The name of the Virgin comes from the little tank that collected the water.
