Pyramids of Guimar - TF69

The Ethnographic Park "Pirámides de Güímar" is a step pyramid complex, oriented astronomically to the summer and winter solstices, and hence of a great cultural, historical and archaeoastronomical value. Within its premises you will discover six stepped pyramids, showing great resemblance to those found in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Sardinia, Sicily, South America and other parts of the world. The park also includes an outstanding museum, housing statues, ceramics, photographs, models and other items that suggest cultural parallelisms between the old and new worlds.
