Dear Editor: La Orotava Tenerife

La Orotava in the north of Tenerife is considered one of the 20 prettiest towns in all of Spain. La Orotava is an ancient, beautiful place with centuries of rich history and culture that create a colourful holiday for all who visit.

La Orotava is ideal for walking and afternoons can be spent admiring the old mansions and the narrow stone-laid streets boasting tapas restaurants, local merchants and quiet cafes.

Things to do and see
On your walking tour of La Orotava visit the stunning Jardines Victoria, the Plaza del Liceo with lovely rooftop views and also stop in to see La Casa de los Balcones and Casa Lercaro which wonderfully represent times past.

If you fancy a chocolate and a cake, do not miss Casa Egon behind the Town Hall.  It is a very well known among locals for selling yummy sweets.

There are a lot of typical Canarian restaurants called “Guachinches” that serve great barbecued meat and large quantities of the delicious local wine.  The prices are very cheap!

The more adventurous tourists should not miss a visit to Mount Teide (3718 metres) in Orotava´s valley; it´s the highest mountain in Spain!

Getting there
La Orotava is located in the north of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, near Puerto de la Cruz the main city in the north. It is a 25 minute drive from Los Rodeos North Airport and 80 minutes drive from Reina Sofia South Airport.
