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.
