A tasty, typical Canarian treat in the town of Arico.
A classic Canarian product from a top Canarian cheesemaker.
Blessed are the cheesemakers! Amongst the Canary Islands' most important traditional products (and exports) are its cheeses, derived over the course of centuries mostly from goats and sheep. A large variety can be found originating from many dairies, but one of the most important is this prestigious, awardwinning one in the town of Arico, particularly famous for its cheese made from red pepper and gofio (cornmeal). You can take a guided tour and of course buy as many different kinds of local cheese as you can cart off — a tasty takeaway from your Tenerife visit, no?
