San Cristobal de la Laguna

Stately homes, cobbled streets, churches and an undoubtedly colonial air invite you to visit San Cristóbal de La Laguna. Strolling through its streets takes us back to the 16th, 17th and even 18th centuries. Beginning of the history of Tenerife with the aborigines of the island defeated and Tenerife annexed to the Crown of Castile. Not surprisingly, La Laguna was the first and ancient capital of the island. Your visit is mandatory.

No city on the island of Tenerife preserves the colonial past so well and in such a short space as the city of La Laguna. So much so that since 1999 it has the honor of having been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. La Laguna is also a university headquarters, episcopal headquarters and city where one of the two airports on the island of Tenerife is located, the Tenerife North airport.

The most recommended and comfortable is to visit San Cristóbal de La Laguna on foot. Take advantage of its pedestrian streets. If we have a vehicle, the most sensible thing to do is to park in the area set up for this purpose located behind the Plaza del Adelantado (marked with a star on the map). From that point we can start a route of just over an hour that will take us through the heart, the historic center of what is known as Ciudad del Adelantado.
