A 16th Century palace in La Laguna
The Casa Lercaro is found in the north of Tenerife, in La Laguna, a city that has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site. Dating back over four centuries, this impressive palace houses the Tenerife History Museum, though it is hard to know what is more interesting; the permanent exhibitions inside, or the building itself. Due to its central location in La Laguna’s Old Town, it is easy to visit the Casa Lercaro as part of a gentle stroll through the town.
A museum where you can discover Tenerife's history
Visitor will discover archaeological pieces, works of art and objects from different epochs in the history of Tenerife and the Canaries on the walls and in the glass cases of this history museum. Exploring the patios of the building you will find many interesting artefacts, such as the carriages from the 18th and 19th Centuries, carefully restored, a gravestone that is now a step, or the wells that delivered water to the house in times gone by. Legend also has it that the Canaries’ most famous ghost also lives here.
