Adeje is a town in the municipality of the same name, in the south of Tenerife. After the municipality of Arona, it has experienced the fastest population growth in the past decade. Although the town of Adeje has grown steadily, it has very much maintained its authenticity compared to neighboring more touristic areas such as Los Cristianos. The growth of Adeje has been planned and it therefore has evolved into an attractive village with many green spaces and spacious streets, mainly populated by local people and residents of the island.
Before the conquest of the island, all historians agree, that there existed a primitive Guanche political organization covering the entire island territory and whose king or mencey resided in Adeje. The menceyato of Adeje, when the island was divided into nine kingdoms in the late fourteenth century, was an important seat of Guanche community.
The last mencey, who after his baptism was called Don Diego de Adeje, made peace with the Spaniards and is the only one on record who lived in Tenerife after the conquest, as they were granted land and left descendants in Adeje.
From 1496 the period of colonization begins with the divisions of land or datas granted by Alonso Fernandez de Lugo in this jurisdiction. This led to the establishment of a small group of houses around the Rio de Adeje, where the center of the village would settle. In 1560 the parish of Adeje was founded.
The oldest part of Adeje is high on a hillside, clinging on to the base of the mountains which form the foothills of Mount Teide. As such many of the streets are steep. At the top is the church with several old houses. Descending from this point we have the Town Hall and a square that hosts a stage and meeting point for numerous events held throughout the year.
Adeje has a sports center very popular among the sports community. Near the village of Adeje we find several shops and superstores. In the upper town is the entrance to the famous Barranco del Infierno, a trip of about 3h30 in total.
To this effect: Adeje is the perfect location to learn Spanish. You can practise the recently learned directly in daily life with the local people around you. Also, thanks to the wide choice of free time activities and places to visit, you can emerge directly into the real life in Tenerife and enjoy exciting new experiences.
