  Gigantes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Greek mythology, the Gigantes were a race of giants, children of Ge (the primordial Earth mother), who was fertilized by the blood of Ouranos that resulted from his castration by Cronus.
With the aid of their powerful weapons and Heracles, the Olympians defeated the Gigantes and quelled the rebellion, confirming their reign over the earth, sea, and heaven, and confining the Gigantes to the Netherworld.
The most important of the Gigantes were Alcyoneus slain by Heracles, Porphyrion destroyed by Zeus with lightning bolts, Enceladus and Pallas killed by Athena, Polybotes crushed by Poseidon beneath Nisyros Island, Hippolytus by Hermes, Ephialtes shot by Apollo with arrows, Mimas by Hephaestus with bolts of metal and Clytius by Hecate with flaming torches.

 Cronus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Uranus drew the enmity of Cronus' mother, Gaia, when he hid the gigantic youngest children of Gaia, the hundred-armed Hecatonchires and one-eyed Cyclopes, in Tartarus, so that they would not see the light.
From the blood (or, by a few accounts, semen) that spilled out from Uranus and fell upon the earth, the Gigantes, Erinyes, and Meliae were produced.
After dispatching Uranus, Cronus re-imprisoned the Hecatonchires, the Gigantes, and the Cyclopes and set the dragon Campe to guard them.

 Gigantes y Cabezudos   (Site not responding. Last check: )
After the first scene of Gigantes, we are shown powerful archival footage of soldiers departing for the American War in 1897, and told that early film audiences much preferred to watch romantic dramas about the War of Independence.
We're also forcibly reminded that there is only a year between the realistic drama of Gigantes, and the tongue-in-cheek mannerism of the slighter piece.
Gigantes y Cabezudos is one of the greatest works in the repertoire, and the genteel farce of La viejecita proves an admirably funny foil to the Centenary work's potent mixture of popular dance and poignant drama.

While we're pointing out Los Gigantes' flaws (of which there are not many, it has to be said), the town's other bugbear is its traffic situation, which can be extremely frustrating at times.
The roads in Los Gigantes are very narrow, with a one-way system operating throughout most of the town, and it is next to impossible to ever find a parking space in the centre of the resort.

 Los Gigantes Tourist Information and Travel Guide   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The resort of Los Gigantes along with its nearest neighbours Puerto Santiago, and Playa la Arena have, for all intents and purposes, over recent years all now merged to form the largest resort development in the municipal district of Santiago del Teide along the rugged west coast of Tenerife.
Los Gigantes is certainly not the resort to spend two weeks in if you have any form of mobility problems, and is certainly not recommended for parents with young children in pushchairs.
Returning if we can back to Los Gigantes for a few moments, the commercial centre of the town is a hundred metres or so inland from the marina, and although it isn't particularly large, it does have a fair selection of bars and restaurants, along with a pedestrian zone centred around the old church.
