Small Town in the North of Tenerife
La Orotava is a town in the northern part of Tenerife, located in the valley of La Orotava. It is five kilometers away from the coast, and the nearest town is the Puerto de la Cruz.
La Orotava has 40000 inhabitants and it is a beautiful place because it has very pretty houses from the time of the first conquerors. There is a small tourist office, and the route is traced in the streets so that you don’t miss the main points of interest. Among them are the beautiful house of balconies, which is a museum and a workshop which still makes traditional arts and crafts. The entrance to the workshop is free of charge, but you have to pay for the museum. Then there is the church of Nuestra Señora de la Concepción, the convent of San Agustín, the square of the city hall…and the beautiful gardens of Quinta Roja.
