    Exactly what it says,
    Start with a description and give clues if no one gets it.
    There are 2 of these (that I know of).
    One is in Adeje, the other is on the under prom in Fanabe/Del Duque area.
    It has a nickname and I am looking for both.

    Easy one to start, if you get it right your turn and it can be anywhere in Tenerife and anything, as long as it is feasible that members will know it.

    Yes! yes yes!

    My turn... This is easy

    On the way into a town in the North of the island, the road passes a fountain on which there is a statue of a woman who surveys the valley below. She can also be found in the South of the island where she offers plenty of accommodation to tourists – who and what is she?.

    Yes that's her Princesa Dácil was the daughter of Guanche mencey Bencomo, King of Taoro - who was a bitter enemy of the Spanish invaders. However, all is fair in love and war and the princess fell in love and married one of the conquistadors, Captain Fernán García del Castillo.

    He built her this place in Los Cris lol!

    I guessed a bit and checked it out. Remember Princess Dacil was someone special and I love La Oratava and know the fountain and Statue, so checked it out.

    If it's a shady place out of the wind then I would guess at El Medano. Is that the corner of Montaña Roja in the first piccy?
