  La Laguna
by steventilly

La Laguna as it's more commonly known was the first capital of Tenerife, holding that title for some 200 years until Santa Cruz took over in the 1920's. It's also the second largest city of Tenerife and a university city. The old-town core of the city is lovely, largely unchanged over the centuries and containing some lovely old buildings and streets, especially around the main square.
Beyond this old core is nice too, and the university quarter is interesting and has some decent cafes and bars aimed at students - which means low, low prices!

Directions: La Laguna is about 20 to 30 minutes from Santa Cruz by bus.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
