Join the Free La Laguna Tour and discover a 500+ year old city and UNESCO world heritage site, founded when the Crown of Castile conquered the island in 1496. Located just a short tram ride away from Santa Cruz, it’s a truly gorgeous site—overflowing with mystery, romance, desire, and intrigue. This tour has been designed to accommodate all types of visitors, from first-timers who want to see all the main landmarks to those who want to delve deeper and discover its best kept secrets. Most tours will begin around La Laguna Cathedral, one of the architectural gems of the city. Here you’ll learn about the rivalry between the nobility and the church, and how it came to affect the city’s design.

Up until the 19th century, La Laguna was the island’s capital. Its importance is reflected in exquisite architectonic marvels in every corner. As your group navigates the charming streets, you'll be delighted by the number of churches and palaces, which display a wide range of flamboyant styles, ranging from Gothic, to Plateresque, to Mudéjar, to Baroque and Neoclassical. Get your camera ready as you travel back in time, strolling past typical 17th century Canary buildings, the Casa de los Jesuitas and Casa Salazar. See the Casa de la Alhondiga, where the poorest residents of the city were supplied with wheat. Discover how it also acted as a prison during the Peninsular War and a hospital in 1918 during the flu pandemic.

On the La Laguna Free Tour, you'll hear gripping tales of pirates, nuns, death, betrayal, and ghostly appearances. A stop at Santo Domingo Church will reveal the story of one of the island’s most famous characters—Amaro Pargo, the notorious pirate turned pious devout, and his relationship with Maria de Jesus, the renowned "incorrupt nun". See the modern face of this beautiful place; a university town offering a fun and upbeat ambiance. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to grab a drink or a bite to eat. During the tour, do not hesitate to ask your guide as many questions as you wish. And, of course, guests will come away with a host of recommendations and tips for the rest of their stay.
