DescriptionEnjoy a full day of culture and nature with a guided bus tour to Santa Cruz and La Laguna, the modern and ancient capitals of Tenerife, the Taganana region and the historic town of Candelaria. Explore the beauty of the colonial-style towns in search of architectural, cultural and gastronomic wonders. Immerse yourself in the enchanted emerald nature of Taganana and end the tour in Candelaria, home to the famous basilica that houses the image of the Virgin of Candelaria, patron saint of the Canary Islands. Get a taste of the authentic Canarian lifestyle by visiting three of the island's most important cities, each with its own distinctive character. Santa Cruz, the modern capital, is a stunning example of a coastal city with magnificent architecture and excellent gastronomy. La Laguna, the former capital and a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1999, is a unique example of a colonial city without walls. Candelaria is a historic town famous for its beautiful basilica where the Virgin Mary resides. The tour includes a visit to the Taganana area, the north-eastern tip of Tenerife, a geologically ancient mountain range that is home to one of the few laurel cloud forests in the world. A perfectly balanced excursion that mixes the best of urban and rural Tenerife. The tour starts with hotel pick-up in the morning of the day chosen at the time of booking. After picking everyone up, the bus will head north towards Santa Cruz, the capital of Tenerife. In Santa Cruz, you will have plenty of time to visit the city centre with its architectural features, shops, cafes and restaurants. The second stop is in La Laguna, the former capital of the island, a stunning example of colonial architecture. The beautiful stone buildings with wooden balconies, narrow streets and several churches that make up the city centre were declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1999. La Laguna is also a bustling town full of bars, pubs and restaurants. The tour continues with a visit to the Taganana region, located in the north-eastern corner of the island. Considered to be the geologically oldest part of Tenerife, Taganana and the nearby Anaga Mountains stand out for their wild nature and lush forests; a stark contrast to the rest of the island's arid landscape. The last stop is Candelaria, a historic village a few kilometres south of Santa Cruz. According to historical accounts, in 1390, two Guanches, natives of the island, found a mysterious statue at the bottom of a ravine. When the first Christian conquerors arrived on the island, they identified it as the statue of the Virgin Mary, who later became the patron saint of the Canary Islands.
