La Laguna – World Heritage Site of UNESCO

Program of the day
In the morning you will visit the sights of La Laguna on a guided walking tour through the historic center: Old Canarian mansions with their adorable interior courtyards (Patios), the cathedral and ancient monasteries are example of the Canarian arquitecture of the age of the conquest. This was a very good reason for UNESCO to declare the old town with the title of World Heritage Site. Afterwards the trip continues into the lush and green Mercedes forest, a so-called old “fairy tale forest”. On our hike you will discover the amazing green flora of this “laurisilva”: a mixture of laurel and heather trees. The transfer back will bring you on the mountain road along the ridge of the Anaga Mountains to the famous Teresita beach before arriving in your hotel in the south of the island.

Close to the island’s capital Santa Cruz you will find the old and former capital of Tenerife – La Laguna. After the visit to the historic center, the tour leads you to the Anaga Mountains. On our hike of round about 1,5h through the green and lush forest you will discover the native flora of the north-east and the little visitor center Cruz del Carmen.
