La Orotava - breathtaking Orotava Valley on the northwest coast

Historic municipality in the North of Tenerife

The town La Orotava is located in the north-west coast in the attractive Orotava valley and is only a few kilometres away from Puerto de la Cruz.

The landscape is characterized by wine-growing areas and banana plantations.
The city is divided into 2 parts, Villa and Farrobo.
Both parts are listed since 2005, because of their special cultural importance.
The city is characterized by beautiful wooden balconies, courtyards covered with greenery and historic buildings. Behind the town hall there is a botanical garden with walks.
The Feast of Corpus Christi, which is celebrated always one week later in La Orotava than elsewhere, is a special event.

On this day, in front of the town hall, magnificent carpets (in Spanish: alfombras) are made from lava sand and flowers.
In the evening, a parade moves through the partly steep streets.
