More than 100 volunteers gathered behind the Castillo de San Felipe in Puerto de la Cruz on Saturday to take part in the clean-up work behind the historical building. Residents and tourists had built hundreds of small stone towers on the beach. Under the motto ‘Pasa in huellas’, which means that people should not leave any traces of their presence in natural areas, the stones were redistributed on the ground. Insects and other animals can find protection again and above all the natural landscape does not look as if it has been manipulated by human hands. The Telesforo Bravo-Juan Coello Foundation had called for the action. At the same time, the campaign was used to clean up the central area between Playa Jardín and the coastal promenade to the port.
