Description

On our La Laguna Free Walking Tour we will go for a walk along what was until the 19th century the capital of Santa Cruz, a place overflowing in romance, mystery and intrigue, born in 1496 after the conquest of the island by the Crown of Castile, this city displays a wide range of flamboyant styles, ranging from Gothic to Pateresque, to Mudéjar to Baroque and Neoclassical. Stroll through the typical patios and houses that embellish the streets, something you won´t find anywhere else in the world while the warm Atlantic ocean breeze sweeps over you making your visit even more delightful. 

Our Spanish speaking guide will tell us the story of one of the island´s most famous characters, the pirate Amaro Pargo renowned for managing to amass a substantial amount of riches through wicked ploys and trade but over time ended up becoming devout and generous, donating his fortune to the poor and orphans. You will hear about the “incorrupt nun” whose body remains intact to this day even after three centuries from the burial. This nun greatly influenced the pirate and succeeded in turning the pirate into an important character in La Laguna

On this tour through the old capital of Santa Cruz we will have the chance to visit several key monuments in the area such as La Casa del Corregidor, the Palace Lercaro which originated from a Genoese family that settled in Tenerife after the conquest of the city and still maintains from its construction, a beautifully preserved decorated patio with motifs dating back to that period or Casa Salazar, a Baroque style palace built by the family of the Salazar that has aside from Baroque elements also mannerist and neoclassic.
