A gun wrapped in a towel was discovered in Puerto de la Cruz, thanks to an observant tourist.
The suspicious package had been left around 200 metres from the police headquarters in plaza de Europa.
The holiday-maker only had to walk a short distance to report the unusual find.
Police said the gun had no ammunition and was cocked so it could not be used. They immediately launched an investigation to see if it had been used in any crime.
