PUERTO DE LA CRUZ
As one of Tenerife's oldest port cities, Puerto de la Cruz embodies a hip, island personality, while still retaining its historic fishing village charm. With narrow, cobblestone streets lined with attractive plazas and quaint cafes, the city's old town is a popular place for admiring antique buildings and for wandering after a long day at the beach.
"One of the most sublime achievements of nature where all her vast resources come together to produce a grandiose and supreme effect is sunrise seen from the peak of Mt Teide. If there is a person who has never experienced a profound trembling of the soul, then that person must seek ectasis on the summit of Mt Teide".
Olivia M. Stone 1887
