Former ancient capital of Fuerteventura.

Betancuria is the former ancient capital of Fuerteventura, which takes it’s name from Jean de Bethencourt a Norman conqueror who founded the city in 1405. As you can imagine there is an abundance of history to discover here.

The city is set in a picturesque valley next to a stream. The stream is dried up today, but flowed up to the 16th century. The position of the city was carefully planned to avoid attacks from pirates. But despite this there was a devastating pirate attack in 1593 by the pirate Jaban. Everything was destroyed including the church of Santa Maria, which was rebuilt in 1691.

Betancuria remained the capital in 1834. This was due to lack of arable land, which lead to people moving away from the city. The next capital was La Oliva, but later the honour was handed to Puerto de Cabras, known today as Puerto Rosario.

There is lots to see in Betancuria including traditional Canarian houses, churches and convents. We recommend a visit to the Casa Museo Arquebiologico, which can be found on the main street. The museum holds interesting and important archaeological finds including fertility idols. There is also an ancient cannon.

Next to the museum there is the Centro Insular de Artesania, where you can see traditional arts and crafts.

The church is open from 10am to 6pm. It has been fully restored and accepts visitors. It also has it’s own museum.

Don’t miss a visit to Casa Santa Maria where you can watch the locals, crafting hand made products, which are also for sale in the shop. There is also a good restaurant here.

Today Betancuria’s economy is totally based on tourist visitors.

Some of the starter dishes include crispy prawns with salad and soy and ginger dressing and warm lobster salad on a bed of pickled apple spaghetti with rocket and watercress in a tangy sweet sauce.

La Laguna

The 2nd most important city in Tenerife.

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.

A pretty harbour town with cobbled streets in the North of Tenerife.

Garachico is a pretty harbour town with cobbled streets.  This styllish town is situated in the North of Tenerife and is well worth a visit. Today you will find a boutique hote here and the lava rock pools in the bay have been re-developped. You will be impressed by the pretty fishermans’ cottages and the grand town houses.

In the 16th and 17th centuries is used to be the main trading harbour with banana steamers and sailing boats, which would transport Malvasia wine and sugar cane. It became a very important port due to it’s naturally deep harbour.

But Garachico has known devastation in the past, but somehow has managed to pick itself up and rise to new heights.

In 1645 there was a huge landslide caused by heavy rains, which destroyed 40 ships and killed over 100 people. But Garachico recovered, but a worse disaster was to follow.

In 1706 Mount Teide erupted sending a molten lava flow down towards Garachico. Luckily the flow was slow enough to allow the townsfolk to evacuate on horseback and on foot. The trade was re-established in Puerto de la Cruz to the East. Today the main trade in Garachico in agriculture, mainly banana plantations.
