I´m from Tenerife. Canary Islands, Spain. And I would like to share a special place on this island.
There is a special place in Tenerife and I would like to share it with you. It is the graveyard of San Andrés.
San Andrés is a village located on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (Spain). It is located 10 km north of the capital city Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in a coastal area by the Anaga Mountains. The village is situated on a mountain slope with an urban area located near the valley and the beach (Las Teresitas). San Andrés is one of the oldest villages of the Canary Islands, and was founded around 1497.
Las Teresitas has a big secret. If you go to this beach you will find one of the oldest cemeteries of the island, and It’s very magical. The cemetery is abandoned and no longer a place to bury anyone. Many tombstones are broken. But to be next to the beach does not seem so gloomy. There are also many baby cribs. This cemetery has a special story. U2 were there!
In February 1991 they were in Tenerife for the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. They came to take some promotional photos for his LP “ACHTUNG BABY”. If you have the LP you will see many photos taken at night of Carnival. They knew the cemetery too.
Do you have the LP? Look carefully the photos! Perhaps you’d seen.
Definitely a good place to rest forever!.
