  • It is the so-called Franciscan snatuario of the Cristo de La Laguna, very revered in all the Canary Islands. It's a Gothic carving of Flemish origin, which dates back to the 16TH century and one of the most renowned crucified of the European art of past centuries.

  • We celebrated our wedding and the truth is that it was perfect. We were not wrong to choose this place. It is ideal for celebrations not be excessively large for that it is necessary to other larger church, but the charm that has this and add the charm that has the lagoon... is ideal.
