Where Should I go: La Laguna or Vigo?

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.


Originally a small fishing town, Vigo has grown to become the most populated municipality in the region of Galicia in northwestern Spain. Remnants of the old world still exist in its historic center architecture and plazas, while the commodities of a modern city have blended into its boundaries. The old center remains the hub of activity with plenty to see and do, shopping and dining included.
