Santa Cruz and La Laguna
After breakfast, spend the day in the northern part of the island on a private tour. You’ll start out with a drive to Santa Cruz, Tenerife's capital and one of the world’s busiest shipping ports. You will see how the city’s restaurants, art galleries, natural history museum, and striking examples of contemporary architecture all contribute to a definitively Spanish, cosmopolitan atmosphere. The day continues with a walking tour in La Laguna, which is considered to be the cultural capital of the Canary Islands. Its historical center was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 and is known for its many beautiful churches, including Santo Domingo, the Church of the Holy Christ, and the San Miguel Chapel. Afterwards, the tour continues to Bodegas Monje Vineyard in El Sauzal for a tasting of traditional Canarian wine. Located 500 meters above sea level, the vineyard is situated on rocky ground and solidified lava from the nearby volcano. The Monje family is among Tenerife’s first wine producers, cultivating and bottling wine since 1750. At the end of the day, your guide will return you to your hotel.
