World Heritage & Wine Land - TF65

San Cristóbal de La Laguna, declared a World Cultural and Heritage Site by Unesco, has maintained its highly valued historic centre in an exemplary state of conservation. As well as important monuments and historic buildings, there is an important centre of commercial activity, offering the chance to buy souvenirs to remember your visit to the island: fashion, Tenerife wines, Canarian craftwork and typical gastronomical products. Taking a step away from the holiday resorts and urban centres enables you to discover a different Tenerife, where nature lives alongside the hard work of the inhabitants.

Leaving  the harbor you will take the motorway straight to La Laguna, located in the center of the Aguere Valley and just a few kilometers from the capital at an altitude of 550 meters above sea level.

The UNESCO "Patrimonies of humanity" declared La Laguna City few years ago. Centuries ago, La Laguna was the capital of the island. Now it is the second most important town on the island. Its founders placed it under the protection of Saint Christopher from which it got its real name: San Cristobal de La Laguna. As a town, it developed in an orderly manner and, as a result, today its streets are straight, its squares large and its monuments proof of its former grandeur. Upon arrival in La Laguna, you will walk to the Church of the convent of "Santa Catalina," the popular market in the "Plaza del Cristo," the Cathedral (from outside), strolling along the "Calle de San Agustin" to see the facades of the Episcopal Palace and Lercaro Palace. Return to the bus and continue to Tacoronte, the most important area of vineyards on the island where your next stop will be at the famous Bodega Alvaro where an aperitif with different types of wines will be served.

The history of Viera and Clavijo pointed out that the first vines planted in the Canary Islands, in the year after the conquest, came from the eastern Mediterranean, especially the vines that produced the famous Malmsey, the most famous of the Canary Island wines and immortalized by Shakespeare in his works.

Following your sampling, you will continue with a visit to the wine museum of "La Baranda" in El Sauzal where you will enjoy a nice view over the north coast from its terrace. After your visit to the wine museum, you will return by the motorway to the pier.

Note: Conservative attire and comfortable shoes are recommended. Shoulders and knees must be covered when entering the churh.  Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.5 miles over gravel paths and cobblestone streets.
