Puerto de la Cruz, the smallest municipality on the island, is a strategic point in the north, just a short distance from the island’s most unforgettable places that will remain in your heart forever.
The north facing side of the island is a place rich in vegetation, such as La Orotava Valley, which has been a historical site since 1976 and is also known as the valley of the balconies due to its land surface reaching altitudes of 390 metres, or the coastal area, the beautiful Garachico – a half-Genovese half-Canarian village, whose architectural heritage is listed as a place of Cultural Interest, and Buenavista del Norte, with its impressive ravine Barranco de Masca or Punta de Teno.
In the north of Tenerife, you will discover villages, squares, and a rich history such as weaving traditions particular to this region.
Just 30 minutes by car, you can visit two World Heritage sites: the Teide National Park (through the municipality of La Orotava) and the city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna – with its rich cultural heritage and its mixture of tradition and cosmopolitism. Take a detour to the capital city, only 10 minutes down the motorway from San Cristobal de la Laguna, to see some important examples of international modern architecture, such as TEA Space of the Arts or Tenirife’s auditorium, Auditorio de Adan Matin. If you want to continue exploring, head to Anaga rural park.
Anaga, named Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, is a subtropical forest with more than six hundred endemism of animals and plants and its Laurisilva – a Jurassic world that is extremely humid and good for the heart and soul.
