Enjoy a wonderful 4-hour excursion on board a 9-seat Ford Transit Custom. excursion during these 4 hours. In this half day we will focus on the two main religious cities of the island of Tenerife, San Cristóbal de la Laguna and Candelaria. We will start by taking a walk through La Laguna, through its unique network of streets, a city that seems to have stopped at the time of the conquest of Tenerife. We will admire its stupendous patios of wood and volcanic stone and we will enter the most outstanding churches.
We will know the history of the Virgin of Candelaria in the homonymous city, place of pilgrimages from all the Canary archipelago and we will visit its Basilica with the famous frescoes of José Aguiar. In the Plaza Patrona of the Canary Islands we will find sculptures of the ancient menceyes (kings) guanches, the first settlers of the island.
