The cathedral in town. Take a peak, but not all that impressive, just a big church. Streets outside are lively.

You can't miss this church when you are in La Laguna. You pay a small fee to get inside. It's worth a visit.

5 euros entry very steep for what there is to see. You do have an audio handset issued. The church mostly dates from the early 20th century, with renovation work as late as 2014. However, there are several much older altarpieces and paintings, which are...More
