Espiritu Santo – Los Gigantes

This beautiful church is situated in the Plaza Bourgainvillea , Los Gigantes in the Municipality of Santiago Del Teide.

It has modern stained glass windows, a large painting behind the altar depicting the Disciples (some known residents of Los Gigantes). Inset into the walls are three dimensional representations of the Stations of the Cross.

The official opening of the church was in May 1997 by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Tenerife. It is now shared for worship by both Roman Catholics and Anglicans. The church is open to visitors daily with Anglican Communion with Hymns services on Thursdays at 10.30 and Sundays at 6pm throughout the year.

After the service we meet for fellowship in Cafe Asturias (on Thursdays) and on Sundays in Café Cappuchino Maria, opposite the Highland Paddy (it can be seen from the church door).

How to get there:

From Autopista TF-1 travelling north with the sea on your left, you take the exit marked San Juan, Alcala, Puerto de Santiago, Los Gigantes, taking a left which will lead you down a long hill, about 6 kms. At the bottom at the roundabout, turn right, follow the signs to Puerto de Santiago and Los Gigantes passing through the village of Alcala and continue some 4 kms until you come to the second roundabout just after the police and fire stations (Bomberos) which you will see on your left. Turn left. At the 3rd sharp bend fork right (taking you effectively straight ahead), and then bear left into the one-way system which will take you down to Los Gigantes. At the bottom of the hill turn right. You have arrived in Los Gigantes. The challenge is then to find a parking space. If you are able to park on the road on which you are travelling you need to pay at a machine (you can return to the machine to get your money back when you are ready to leave!). However, parking is free in the evenings, Sundays and public holidays. Many people park on one of the side streets which are unrestricted. The church is situated in the main square and is very easy to find, and is opposite the shops, cafes, banks etc.

If you are travelling from Armeñime, Playa Paraiso, Callao Salvaje or San Juan you take the TF-47 in the direction of Puerto de Santiago and Los Gigantes (i.e. north with the sea on your left). When you get to Alcala the directions are as above.
