La Orotava Tenerife

The La Orotava Tenerife is a beautiful town located on the North-West coast of the island. Many noble and wealthy families live in this town. These people settled in this part of the Tenerife after the Spanish invasion. This royal town has beautiful plazas and cobblestone streets. It has several big mansions lined up on the coastline, which you cannot find anywhere on this Island. The La Orotava and the La Laguna Tenerife are both the gorgeous towns. Is worth visiting them during your Tenerife holidays for an unforgettable experience.

The town surrounded by beautiful and lush valleys, and it has been considered as the wealthiest regions since the 16th century. The Mansion and beautiful churches were built in the 17th century. Some were built in the 16th century. The valley is famous for producing chestnuts, bananas, and grape. This valley is also very popular for hiking, where you can see the maze of trail lead you into Canarian Pine woods. On the top of the mountain, you can view 1200m down over the coastal plain. The tourist department is very friendly. They gave me good advice on routes.
The slopes of the Valley are very fertile where the farmers cultivate various products including vines.

The horizon of the La Orotava is described as the twin towers and dome of Iglesia de la Concepcion that extended the town by the Muscovite look. When I took a photograph during the day time with the terracotta tiles of the town in the forefront, the domes looked beautiful with the sunlight and the sky changes to the mulberry.  It allowed me to capture the perfect picturesque scenery of the town. You can also try taking photographs during dusk.
