San Cristobal de la Laguna in North Tenerife is the second most populated city in Tenerife. It is located close to Santa Cruz, which it is linked to by tramlines.
In 1999 the historical centre was declared a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.
Many years ago, La Laguna used to be the capital city of Tenerife, after the Spanish conquest in the 1400s.
It is home to the University of La Laguna, which is the oldest university in the Canaries and is home to 30,000 students. It was founded in 1701.
It is also worth visiting the Cathedral of La Laguna, which is the Catholic cathedral of Tenerife.
In the 18th century the capital was transferred to Santa Cruz due to a declining economy and population in La Laguna. But today it is still considered to be the “cultural capital”.
We would also recommend a visit to the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Concepcion to see the fabulous wooden pulpit which dates from the Baroque era and the ornate wooden ceiling. There is also a museum inside the church, where you can explore more about the art and history of La Laguna.
It is a truly beautiful city with narrow streets and colourful townhouses and historic mansions. There are also plenty of small shops and tempting tapas bars.
