La Laguna

Much of the area in Tenerife has expanded and grown to cater to the tourist crowd of Europe and the world. However, there is one gem tucked away that has maintained the charm and beauty of the old world. The historic city of La Laguna is the home of mansions, bars, eccentric small shops, and serves as a model for many of the colonial towns in North America. In 1999 the town was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites.


Oviedo is the capital city of the Asturias Principality in Northern Spain. It is a city of churches and cathedrals with many of its buildings designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Its old town, or Casco Antiguo, is the most historic part of Oviedo, where many of the UNESCO sites are situated.
