Mostly rural, the municipality stretches for 30 square kilometers from the volcanic peaks that rise in the center of the island to the Atlantic shore.

Bodegas Monje

In the heart of the countryside, the slopes of La Hollera, in Sauzal, offer visitors a unique experience: a journey of the sense to discover the Canary Island wine growing tradition through its memories, its landscapes, its cuisine and its culture. Guided tours, tasting or good food workshops, the chance to taste wines and traditional dishes, artistic events in the outstanding Monje Cultural Space, etc.

We pre booked wine tasting and had an enjoyable tasting session followed by a tour of the wine production which was hosted by the enigmatic Lola who is charming.The Monge family have being making wine in Teneriffe since 1758 but not originally at this location and produce 7 wines and interestingly enough vinegar chocolate. The red and white Christmas sweet pudding wines are really nice as is the Reds,rose and whites . There is a large restaurant above the wine production and storage area and you could spend a pleasant afternoon on the terraces enjoying a nice glass of wine and the view here in El Sauzal

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.

Mercadillo de Agricultor

Reviewed By PoppyMadragora - England, United Kingdom

Open Saturday and Sunday mornings; parking outside, but if that's full, there's plenty of space nearby.
The fruit and veg are fantastic - used mostly by locals when we were there, and we don't speak a word of Spanish, but the stall holders were lovely and we managed to buy everything we wanted. The bread from the stall on the right as you enter was just fantastic, as were the butterfly filleted chicken breasts we bought from the cooperative towards the rear of the market. A word to the wise, though - on that stall they operate a 'numbered ticket' system, so be sure to take a ticket from the counter when you arrive, or you'll be standing there all day!
There was no fish on sale when we were there - presumably there's dedicated fish markets elsewhere - Puerto de la Cruz?

The swimming pools at Bajamar are free to use, and when the waves are coming in it's really fun. the water is clean, and the atmosphere is pleasant and very Spanish. Plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity. Better in summer than winter, as here in the north of Tenerife, it can be a bit chilly!

Zona Recreativa Las Raices

Reviewed By Dudo2 - Canton of Basel, Switzerland

On the road TF24 up from La Laguna to the Teide National Park there is a beautiful recreation area in the pine forest. Since it is away from the main road it is not visited by tour buses. Shortly after La Esperanza there is a turning to the left, TF274 Machado and Escuela Hogar. This road will lead you to Las Raices, a beautiful picnic site in the middle of the Tenerife-Pine forest, with the soil covered by needles. There are numerous tables and fire places there. If not for the picnic site, then this little detour is worth it for the scenery of the pine forest. On some stretches the soil is not only covered by pine needles, but also by ferns and the like. Beautiful views.

Loro Parque is the world-famous and adored by all animal adventure park in the Canaries. Get ready for excitement and fun at this "must see" attraction..

Reviewed By NDeNDeNDe - Finland

This is a great zoo with a lot of interesting shows and animals to see. I would recommend everything, but to pick a few of the favourites, I'll say you definitely don't want to miss the penguins, whales, dolphins, gorillas, lions and the macaw aviary. If you want to attend all the shows, you probably have to plan a little bit and be there in the morning.

Casa Del Vino La Baranda

Reviewed By MPeterson67 - Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom

We called in here at lunch time on the off chance. Although they were busy, they managed to fit us in. It goes without saying that the wine was outstanding. We chose a local wine, which was reasonably priced and excellent. I had a bread and cheese platter, with a huge variety of excellent cheese. It was more than I could eat, and served as an excellent and filling lunch. My biggest regret is that I hadn't room to try one of the appetising range of cakes on offer. To make the most of your visit, have a look at the museum.
