HACIENDA CRISTOFORO is a place of peace and retreat in the South of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Forty-Four years ago one could not have believed how dry and arid the site was with no vegetation, just rocks. Yet the energy of the site and rawness of the earth captivated the imagination of its founder, the architect and therapist Denis Devaris, to create a retreat where like minded people could collaborate their ideas through workshops and seminars. It is now an ecological centre where a space is provided for individual retreat or group activities, just a 15 minute-walk away from the coastline.
Hacienda Cristóforo is the house of the Rudolf Steiner Association of Arts, Agriculture, Education and Complementary Therapies. Charity Organization, registered in Gobierno de Canarias, number G1/S1/7609-86/TF. Since 1986

“It doesn’t make sense to talk about spiritual science, if it is nod dedicated to service Humankind”
“Tonight, I have dreamed that I was a butterfly. But, how could I know, if I am a man who has dreamed that he was a butterfly, or a butterfly that now is dreaming being a man?”

“We are not Human Beings having a Spiritual Experience, but Spiritual Beings, having a human experience”
Based on Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophic Philosophy and open to any likeminded movement, this Centre welcomes any visitor looking for peace, quiet and good weather. The environment itself is designed to therapeutically revitalize the exhausted and relax the stressed one.
CRISTOFORO Centre has opened his doors to groups performing medical-therapeutic, as well as personal development activities. The criteria to support these activities have been those of facilitating the development of an spiritual awakening with a clear consciousness, without any artificial stimuli.
The essence of this Centre is based on the absence of dogmatism and sectarism, respect to freedom, individuality and integrity of each and every person.
