Join the Free La Laguna Tour and discover a 500+ year old city, a UNESCO world heritage site, which was 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 in mystery, romance, desire, and intrigue.

La Laguna was the island’s capital up until the 19th Century, reflecting exquisite architectonic marvels in every corner. You’ll be delighted by its churches and palaces, which display a wide range of flamboyant styles, ranging from Gothic, to Plateresque, to Mudéjar, to Baroque and Neoclassical. Stroll through the typical 17th Century Canary patios, which you won’t find anywhere else in the world, and you’ll suddenly find yourself suspended in time while the warm ocean breeze sweeps over you. On the Free Tour of La Laguna, you’ll travel through time as you stroll through the streets of an old and glorious city, which treasures torturous tales of pirates, nuns, death, betrayal, and ghostly appearances. Discover the other, more cheerful, face of this beautiful place as well, a university town which gained fame 3 centuries ago, thus offering a fun and upbeat ambiance for everyone.
