Tenerife and Its World Heritage Towns with a Festive Lunch - 2018 ( 7 Hours )
Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Spain | 02 Dec 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Leaving Santa Cruz, we will drive to La Laguna, the former capital of the island, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999. Enjoy a panoramic tour of La Laguna which is lined with noble buildings from the 18th century with impressive façades. There is a change of scenery in Calle Viana, where the noble buildings become colorful middle-class homes in a pre-Columbian style. We will visit the Santuario del Cristo de la Laguna, or Cristo Negro, a 17th century Franciscan convent. La Laguna developed in an orderly manner and so today, its streets are straight, its squares large and its monuments are all proof of its former grandeur.

We will then drive to the beautiful town of La Orotava (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site), at 1,000 feet above sea level and located within the fertile valley of the same name, for a brief walking tour. The town was originally developed around the Church Nuestra Señora de la Concepción; built during the 16th Century and destroyed by earthquakes in 1704 and 1705. The town showcases traditional Canarian architecture with shaded courtyards and homes with balconies. The Casa de los Balcones are 17th Century mansions with twin tiers of delicately carved balconies; one of the mansions has been converted into a handicraft shop displaying many of the traditional arts of the island like the exposition of the sand carpets. This tradition comes from the festivities of Corpus Christi, when the streets are decorated with volcanic sand and flowers in preparation for the passing of the procession.

Afterwards we will travel to the town of Puerto de la Cruz to explore this charming village with cafes, shops and the best restaurants in Tenerife. Here we will enjoy a gourmet lunch with top Spanish wines at Restaurante Casa Regulo, located in the historical city center.

On the way back to the pier we will stop briefly to admire The Tenerife Auditorium "Adán Martín" which is the creation of the famous Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. This impressive piece of architecture has a huge sculptural impact and is a unique landmark in Tenerife. It offers its visitors the opportunity to admire the architecture as well as being able to enjoy the other natural attractions, such as the sea and mountain ranges that form part of the ancient Anaga Mountains.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual with comfortable shoes. Moderate walking on uneven surfaces and cobblestones with some inclines. The walking tour in Orotava includes some steps and incline, but this visit is brief and guests can wait in a nearby cafe if they are unable.
