Over the last 10 years, Tenerife has made great leaps forward. One thing that is certainly noticeable is that the infrastructure ie. roads, motorways, hospitals, public buildings, paving etc. have really improved. Take the municipal town of Adeje for example. Adeje (pronounced Add'eckay) is the province that we at Club Olympus come under. A great deal has been done to lift the quality of the town itself. Here below is Adeje Town Hall.
Some of the municipal towns used to be dusty backwaters with dirt roads and very little infrastructure. That is not the case now. Adeje province has renamed and re-invented itself as 'Costa Adeje' and takes its image seriously.
Shown above is the square between the Town Hall and the Church which has recently been improved. The setting of this town is beautiful with dramatic mountains and ridges as background. The flat top mountain in the photo is called 'Montana de Conde' or it is sometimes called 'Montana de la Mesa' or 'Tabletop mountain' for obvious reasons!
Pictured above is the top of Adeje main Street with a certain Mr Karlsen reclining on one of the benches. We had just visited one of our favourite restaurants 'The Chicken Shack' or Bar Oasis to give it its proper name.
The town of Adeje is well worth visiting for its superb restaurants, bars, walks and atmosphere. The improvements to the infrastructure here are representative of the island as whole.
If you haven't been for a while, you will notice a big difference!
See you soon.
