A pretty town at the foot of the mountain
Buenavista is the last northern town in Tenerife; the road ends here, beyond which all you find is the rocky fortress of the Teno Mountains. But the charm of this northern village is not only about its stunning scenery - it was declared a site of Cultural Interest for its historic streets and for the numerous examples of small traditional houses which combine different traditional styles brought in by the Spanish conquerors.
A walk through ancient streets and plazas
Your visit should begin at the church and the Plaza de los Remedios, a meeting point for locals. Around the square you can see buildings from the 16th and 17th Centuries, which have been restored with great care and which give the town centre its stamp of individuality. In the main streets there are small tiled houses, like the Calle el Chorro, at the end of which you can find the old public laundry sites, of great ethnographic value. To finish your visit, you simply must stop by the awarding winning cake shop El Aderno.
