  • The Cathedral is pretty, but by much rather simple - didn't impress me much. But if you're in La Laguna, he goes to see her.

  • Until it recently closed for renovation. Currently you can see wonderful square that surrounds it and visit the Cathedral is compulsory for the traveller who visits La Laguna.

  • It is a nice bright, well-kept, very original styles and finishes, inside conveys peace, walkable after the altar and surrounded by a beautiful urban environment, built over a temple of the year 1515, now the 200-year-old neoclassical façade is made of stone, Gothic Revival 100 years inside is only 2 years of cement and ground glass domes and concrete. I emphasize a large Baroque altarpiece from the 16TH century Flanders, the pulpit of Italian marble from the 18TH century that is a jewel and various carvings and paintings of great value. They told me that it has a museum annex not yet opened to the public with the largest collection of Orthodox icons of Spain and a spectacular display of objects and religious garb dating from the conquest of the island in the 15TH century. The only thing negative that caught my attention is that its two front towers are not finished off with the cross, which I was told was removed some years ago and who inexplicably has not returned to place, what breaks a little exterior Assembly. If are in Tenerife not let of visiting it, you going to like.
