Lovely plaza
Feb 2020
Just the place in La Laguna to sit and people watch for a time. The plaza is situated in the heart of the town and there is a statue in the middle.
Adjacent to the plaza there is a market and a convent and it is nice just to stroll around.
There is also a tourist information office on the plaza.

Cute little square
Jul 2019
This little square was a starting point of our La Laguna visit - a very nice and picturesque UNESCO heritage town.
Somewhere around here, in the nearby streets you must park your car and proceed on foot on mostly pedestrianized streets.
The square is pretty small with trees providing shade and an imposing town hall on its edge.

A nice plaza
Mar 2019 • Solo
Wandering around in La Laguna I jumped into this plaza. Its first paving stones were laid in 1793, and then in 1843 it was fitted with lovely garden areas. Its nice fountain is made of marble and placed in the middle of the square in 1870.

OK square

The town itself is very pretty but there isn't much about this square. There is a an usual fountain in the middle, few nice looking buildings around, that's all.

Town Square
Dec 2017 • Couples
Center of much of the action in town, a square with a big church, lots of places to shop, eat & drink surround.

A peaceful oasis just outside a busy town centre
Sep 2017 • Couples
Just 100 metres from a car park, the Plaza del Adelantado is a large square with an ornate marble fountain. Surrounding trees are fairly mature and provide comforting shade during the hottest part of the day. There are pretty flower beds and stone benches all around the Plaza. It is only half a kilometre from the bustle of the main town with all its restaurants, shops and architectural monuments.

Very attractive place
Aug 2016 • Friends
This is a not really very big squqre, but it´s so well located that you must come around. Facing the city hall and two historic buildings make sth eplace very nice and attractive for visiting. Nearby there are two local coffee shops, not really interesting I must say,

Good place to start your tour of this historic town
May 2016 • Friends
Enjoyed the area and the history. In the plaza it had a small chapel (1506) that was probably one of the first in the old Island capital. Good to start a tour here and close to the towns Tourist Information Office.

Not the best feature of La Laguna
Feb 2016 • Couples
Yes this is a pleasant enough square (with trees to provide shade on a hot day) down beyond the main centre of the town, but there is not overly much to recommend it as a place to visit per se as the building facades around it are not the best and there can be a lot of through traffic.
Perhaps best as a brief stopping point?
