This small fishing port has actually become known by the Swede "Bengt Rylander".
He discovered this place in the mid-1950s.
Los Cristianos became an ideal place for his illness.
The sand containing radioactive mineral grains had a curative effect on his multiple sclerosis disease.

This is how other European countries also found their way to the sunny island.
