Fundacion Cristino de Vera

The Fundacion Cristino de Vera- Espacio Cultural CajaCanarias contains the extraordinary collection of works donated by Cristino Vera (Tenerife, 1931), one of the most relevant artists of the Spanish Art of the 20th centuryThe building, the headquarters of the Fundación, located on a housing of the eighteenth century, preserves the traditional elements of Canary Islands architecture and constitutes a point of reference when you visit San Cristóbal de La Laguna, World Heritage City.

Reviewed By Beverly J - New England

De Vera’s art is subtle and invites the viewer to contemplate mortality, the passage of time, seeing, and silence. If you have time, watch the 47-minute film about the artist. It is quite impressionistic and gives you an even greater appreciation of his work.

Centro Historico de San Cristobal de la Laguna

Reviewed By AnnM06022011 - Waterford, Ireland

Can well see how La Laguna is a Unesco Heritage Site.
It is so well preserved it is like stepping back in time.
The vision of the elders was amazing.
While it has many shops the exteriors have been maintained in the old style.
It is a unique town well wort a visit

Iglesia de la Concepcion

Reviewed By Susan C - Barnard Castle, United Kingdom

This is vastly more interesting and inspiring than the nearby Catedral. It dates from 1511, though of course over the centuries there have been changes and additions. The ceilings in particular are breathaking. I am not religious but this building really instils a sense of awe. For the 2 euros entry fee you can also climb the bell tower and visit one other religious monument in La Laguna.

Bosque de Esperanza

Reviewed By Alberto B - San Cristobal de La Laguna, Spain

Amazing example of the Canary Islands endemic pine tree forest. On your way up to El Teide National Park, you will drive through this beautiful forest which also includes other endemic flora and fauna species. The Canarian pine tree is quite resistant to forest fires and will normally sprout again after a winter's rain.

Museo de Historia y Antropologia de Tenerife (Casa Lercaro)

This Museum´s permanent exhibition, in Casa Lercaro, is a journey through the history of the island, with the emphasis placed on the main economic and social milestones of the last few centuries. Inconclusive and provisional, as any representation of history inevitably has to be, this exhibition is, however, a synthetic approach to the social and cultural dimensions of the island’s past and of how it fits into the dynamics of the history of European expansion.

Reviewed By david h - brecon

Interesting museum. Gives you a lot of the history of Tenerife but was surprised there was nothing much there regarding conquests and invasions i.e. Nelson's failed invasion. It is rather small but has interesting displays all round. Not mind boggling stuff but more in the quaint bracket.
Has-toilets, disabled facilities and cafe. Not sure regarding an elevator.
Signed in Spanish but there is an iPhone audio app. YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE MAP FOR AUDIO TO BE ACCURATE.
€5 entry & closed Mondays.
All in all a pleasant local museum with good facilities and interesting displays. Allow 1-2 hrs.

Santa Iglesia Cathedral

Reviewed By Susan C - Barnard Castle, United Kingdom

5 euros entry very steep for what there is to see. You do have an audio handset issued. The church mostly dates from the early 20th century, with renovation work as late as 2014. However, there are several much older altarpieces and paintings, which are more interesting. You could easily give this a miss and go to the Iglesia de la Concepcion at the end of the street instead.

Plaza del Adelantado

Reviewed By David G

Nice square to sit and meditate. Some good restaurants and bars nearby. Very close is the Casino La Laguna. Sit in their garden and have a cool drink in the summer. Or go down to the bar/restaurant area and have a meal from their excellent menu.
