San Cristóbal de La Laguna is an historic Canary Islands city whose model colonial layout was awarded World Heritage status. Its proximity to the coast enables the city to enjoy the vast Tenerife beaches and the numerous attractions of other cities such as Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz and La Orotava.
La Laguna may be used as a base for touring the more picturesque spots in the north of the island. Puerto de la Cruz has a beautiful promenade and also boasts Lago Martiánez, a complex of salt-water swimming pools designed by the Canary Islands architect César Manrique. La Orotava, situated in the valley of the same name, has abundant examples of ancestral homes designed in the Canary Islands style of architecture and has been awarded Historic-Artistic Heritage status. At Icod de los Vinos it is possible to admire a beautiful complex of traditional architecture and images as famous at that of the thousand-year-old "drago" tree, an indigenous species. Finally, Garachico was once a major port and still preserves buildings of great historical merit, such as the 16th-century castle of San Miguel and the church of Santa Ana.
With regard to its natural surroundings, Tenerife is an island of great contrasts. The long beaches in the south of the island give way in the north to lush vegetation. And right at the geographical centre of the island, rises the Teide, at 3,718 metres the highest mountain in Spain. This volcanic peak is situated inside the boundaries of the Teide National Park, a protected space inhabited by abundant species of wildlife and flora endemic to the Canary Islands.
