Los Silos has a church that had been built in the 16th Century and was later restored in neo-Gothic style in the early 20th century. This notable building is known as the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Luz (“Our Lady of the Light”). In keeping with this idea of “light” it has gleaming white outer walls and is a place you cannot miss if visiting Los Silos.
Our Lady of the Light is depicted on the coat of arms of Los Silos as well. A tower, up on the mountains for defence against pirates, and three caves in Mount Aregume, are also shown.
Just a couple of kilometres from Los Silos is La Piscina, which is a large public swimming pool built next to a beach and the sea. There is a restaurant conveniently next to it that looks out over the sea and along the coast towards Garachico.
The beach is mostly covered in rocks and pebbles but not much further along the seafront area here you will find a proper natural swimming pool formed by a very big rock-pool.
Naturalists and botanists would delight in the coastal areas by Los Silos because here can be found rare endemic plants including the Leafless Spurge (Euphorbia aphylla), which is known in Spanish as “Tolda”.
Local anglers also enjoy fishing from the rocky outcrops on the coast here at the seafront part of Los Silos.
The towering and unmistakeable mountain known as Montaña de Taco is just along the coast overlooking Buenavista. This volcanic cone by the sea actually has a large reservoir inside its crater.
