Adeje Town Centre

The historic centre of adeje gets closer to the sea

Adeje is one of the most important and thriving tourist areas in the whole of Spain. However, its historic centre is to be found quite a way from the coast and its involvement with the tourist area is limited both physically and socially. In that sense the management plan to renovate the centre of Adeje had a double mission. On the one hand a physical link is promoted by means of a walkway connecting the tourist area with the rest of the municipality along with the Barranco del Infierno (a place of great cultural and natural interest) on a perpendicular axis to the coast. On the other hand, the internal movement of the centre is studied, its connections between neighbourhoods and the necessary actions required to convert the old part into the real heart of the place. The main job of analysis and proposal came with the transversal connectivity between the neighbourhoods of La Postura and the old town, and also the prolongation of these axes towards the Barranco del Infierno, in the present day the back part of the town, aiming to open it out to citizens and visitors alike. As far as the urban design proposal is concerned, it encourages the progressive reduction of traffic in the most central streets, redesigning completely the transport system and therefore boosting commercial activity and hospitality services that are associated with pedestrian environments.
