Barranco de Badajoz

Natural sights
nature, nature beauty, ravine

The Barranco de Badajoz or Chamoco is a ravine on the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain), part of the municipality of Güímar in the southeast of the island.

The most significant prehistoric remains on the island were found in this area, demonstrating the aboriginal guanche activity. In addition, several Guanche mummies have been found here, so the place is important archaeologically.

There are many legends about experiences people have had who have visited and stayed mainly at night in the Barranco de Badajoz. Many people claim to have seen apparitions of angelic beings and to have experienced various paranormal phenomena, ranging from UFO's to poltergeists and orbs, balls of fire, appearances of the legendary Tibicena, ritual satanic and other spectral phenomena. The area has been described as similar to the Bridgewater Triangle (Massachusetts) in the United States.
