One of the best places I' ve ever seen. Nice, old town. Casa de los Balcones is awesome. A lot of small restraunts with nice and original national cuisine.

Historic buildings but still a working town. Parks and gardens are lovely as are the views. Several tourist shops. Watch out for little hidden cafes and restaurants in courtyards off the streets. Food and service tends to be good and the views are fantastic

Only a short bus ride from Peurto de la Cruz, we spent a very pleasant few hours exploring. The tourist information was happy to supply a map and point out places of interest

We visited here after visiting La Laguna so were probably spoilt with that to be honest. Car parking and direction signs a bit of a problem. The map from tourist information was ok but we didn't get good advice like we did in La Laguna. Very hilly. The church was beautiful inside.

We have been here before but we went on a Sunday and it was quiet and easy to get around although some shops do not open. But it is a easy place to walk around sit and drink wine or coffee (it can be hilly) away from traffic and crowds. You need to explore.

A lovely village with some shops and a lovely old Catholic Church, it cost only 8 Euros to get there from our hotel for two people, it's set high up, and is quite hilly so wear good walking shoes

Only a couple of kilometers from the heart of Puerto de la Cruz, lies this lovely little town, easily reached by car or local bus. It has many streets to wander, a local heritage and crafts centre [with a car park next to it], and great opportunities for somewhere to eat and drink. I particularly liked the central park on...

Very pretty town in the valley between Teide and Puerto de la Cruz lots to see, bars restaurants, but very hill so be prepared to get very tired. But well worth the visit.
