A video posted on Twitter shows enormous waves striking a Marisol de Mesa house, sweeping away the railings from concrete balconies.
Some six-metre waves have crashed into buildings and restaurants, causing considerable damage, according to witnesses.
The Spanish meteorological agency earlier issued an orange-level alert for the storm in the Canary islands, which lasted two days.
