    We visited this 1958 museum as part of our tour of Santa Cruz. After passing the free entry desk, we proceeded through the halls of the geology, formation and natural history of the Canary Islands. It got very interesting in the hall devoted to the pre-Spanish culture, the Guanches, who are related to the North African Berbers and may have been here since 6,000 BC. Each of the island’s archaeological finds were exhibited to include drawings of how they might have appeared. The best was the mummy room which was under renovation but still available to see the 3rd C figures.

    Charming and full of character little museum located in the former mansion built in 17th century. On the ground floor there’s a shop selling craft products, although one needs a thick wallet to buy them. On the first floor the museum houses former residential rooms. The most attractive part is the lavishly planted courtyard with beautiful wooden balconies.

    Even from outside it was impressive structure. Th ebuidling consists of a series of diagonal lines cutting across different levels. The play of reflections, mix of stone and glass. Worth a look. We didn't get in but it's possible to watch some interiors from the outside. Used as an exhibition ground and education center and has probably more functions.

    A quiet oasis to contemplate the symbolic work of this Canarian artist. It's free to enter and is located in a beautiful old building.

    It’s not a very large place, but definitely worth checking out, since you can get a feel of the carnival and the entrence is free. At least now though, it was required to book a time slot online, to limit the number of people due to Covid.

    It is a free. It is fun, and it is excellent and scientific learning experience. We went in a afternoon when the entire town is closed up due to siesta . We learn a lot about la Orotava, tenerife and the canary island. We spent two hours there.

    This observatory is an international venture with many countries participating. The terminal reverse made Tenerife a unique place like Hawaii or Acatama observatories. This place is focused on the observation of Sun, but also forms part of international experiments. If you like science or just curious- it’s place for you.

    When I heard about these pyramids I just had to see them. We took a bus tour through beautiful landscape.
    Tfis is a huge area covered with pyramids of different sizes, as well as some other structures built in a similar fashion.
    There is an excellent museum and video presntation whicheducate visitors about these and other pyramids arounr the world.
    Worth the time and money.
    On the downside it was obvious that these pyramids were recently rebuilt and cement used to hold the stones together. I wonder how accurately they resemble the originals.

    We drove here on the off chance. I’m not a doll fan but thought the kids might enjoy it. I ended up being more interested than the kids. When we arrived we were greeted by a gentleman (can’t remember his name) who gave us a guided tour around the museum and answers every question we asked. We then went on to the workshop where he showed us how the dolls were made and the process. Good value for the money and also has a little shop at the end..

    This free museum contains two floors of paintings - one containing items from the Prado store cupboard (there is a decent Ribera) and then works by local artists which were probably more interesting. There are also some examples of local modern art.

    We vidoted this quaint place looking for local wine and products. What a treasure! A nice gentleman showed me around and provided a tasting for me as well as information about the local jams. I ended up buying banana and cactus jams as well as local wines. I wish I had more time to explore the back garden full if Banana trees, fruit trees and flowers. So beautiful to spend a lazy afternoon sampling wines and learning about the culture. Local alie Vera products are also available. A definite place to stop and experience local fare and products.

    The personal tour of this museum is friendly and informative. It houses some fantastic collections of artefacts,all given historical context by the enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable tour guide. It gives you a far greater appreciation of La Oratava and the relevance of Catholicism in the area. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this visit, especially as it is the second time we have taken the tour, A drink at the Bar Duquesa makes it a perfect afternoon as you discuss all that you have learnt in the shadow of the church.

    A lovely place - dramatic views on every side; really informative museum area with some fun AI bits as well as the exhibition with large photos, videos and info boards. Really interesting, and a fun experience. The outside areas are beautiful, with wildflower meadows and lovely areas to walk. And surprisingly nice loos too!

    We passed through the area again at sunset on another day, having visited the ecomuseo on a previous day, and had to stop off at the entrance to the ecomuseo to watch the sunset - ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, probably the best sunset I've seen anywhere in the world. Cotton wool clouds coming in to surround us, with dramatic craggy rocks and hills rising up in front of us, silhouetted black against the orange sky and surrounded by a duvet of white fluffy cloud. Absolutely amazing - well worth a visit!! We stayed to watch the sunset for around 40 minutes, completely unplanned, and it took our breath away.
