Lovely place to visit and the scenery is brilliant! Probably one of my favourite places I went to. We went to one of the museums there and that wasn't as great but the town itself is very beautiful, highly recommend it

Beautiful spanish buildings a bit of old spain,went into the churches which i would recommend if visiting here and they are stunning inside,only problem we went late morning so after sightseeing majority of shops were closed for siesta,got a taxi there and back because it was just as cheap as the bus,staying at puerto del la cruz

Part of a pleasant day out in the car - driving through the valley and enjoying the view. Streets bit bewildering but if we could have found a parking space we could have worked that out - usual difficulty with Spanish signposting.

We caught a local bus from Puerto de la Cruz bus station to La Orotava. The lady in the tourist information by the old tpwn in La Orotava was very helpful, It is a lovely little town well worth a visit

Nothing special here and usually cloudy. Old part of town is nice with very limited parking. Not really worth a special trip.

Historic town in the lower hills behind Puerto de la Cruz which has retained its Tenerife/Spanishness. Fantastic views of the Oratava Valley along with delightful cafes and restaurants

Nice road trip to La Orotava, it is a city with a historical part which is not very busy and nice to walk along. Nice views over the valley. We drove back to the south along El Teide, amazing views!!

Went to visit this place one morning. A really well maintained garden with lots of interesting Flora. Cheap entrance and an absolute bargain. Very peaceful ambiance and a credit to the people who maintain the collection of plants and trees.
