Tour description

United to the capital of Tenerife, La Laguna stands as its twin city.

Do you want to know what has historically been the intellectual center of the Canary Islands and the de facto capital of the archipelago until 1833?

Let's go into La Laguna, or "Aguere" for the aborigines of the island! This Canarian jewel can boast the well - earned title of World Heritage Site . His street map was organized in the form of a checkerboard and his plans served as a pilot project for the construction of many new cities in newly conquered American territory.

University City and with a partying youthful atmosphere, there is nothing like strolling through its wide pedestrian streets, with countless gossip and anecdotes that will fascinate you. This enigmatic and colorful city was the capital of the island until the 19th century and thanks to this it has an extraordinary architectural and artistic heritage.

The Plaza de la Milagrosa will welcome us, so called since many plague patients were cared for in this area during the 16th century. We will explain the history behind the old Convent of Santo Domingo de Guzmán , where a renowned Canarian pirate was buried. Around the Plaza del Adelantado there are key buildings in the history of the city.

On our tour we will stop at the Town Hall , the first seat of the Cabildo to be built. The route will be dotted with several "Houses", each of which will reveal an interesting aspect of our culture: The House of the General Captains and the House of the Corregidor, The House of the Alhóndiga, the Cayetano Gómez Felipe House Museum, the Houses Salazar, Lercaro and Montañés…

We will cross the main transit routes and commercial areas such as Calle Obispo Rey Redondo, La Carrera or Calle Herradores until we reach the central point of the historic center, with the beautiful Cathedral of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios . We will also know the Matrix Parish of Our Lady of the Conception , do you want to know what "Matrix" refers to? We tell you!

We will not say goodbye without visiting the Church and Old Convent of San Agustín, the Plaza de la Junta Suprema de Canarias, the Municipal Library or the Convent of Santa Clara , the first of a female character in the entire archipelago. We will also show you the Plaza del Cristo and the Municipal Market , where the most important local festivals are celebrated every September.

Come to know this magical city, where time seems to have stopped between stories of pirates, legends, gardens and palaces .
We will wait for you!
