The charm of a town with delightful views
If there's one thing that makes El Sauzal stand out as special, more than its charming nooks and crannies, it’s the panoramas. Located in the north of Tenerife, perched on a cliff, the whole town is one enormous viewing point, from where visitors can admire a unique view of Teide, standing watch over the Orotava valley, or the shimmering blues of the Atlantic Ocean. Removed from the typical tourist trials, El Sauzal is perfect for those in search of peace and tranquillity.
One of Tenerife's best sunsets
The plaza de San Pedro and its church, the fourth church built in Tenerife following the Spanish conquest, is a good place to begin your exploration of El Sauzal. A few feet above you will find the park and viewing point of Los Lavaderos, a small oasis of water and vegetation where time stands still. And when the sun begins to set there is nothing better than to relax on one of the café terraces with a drink and allow your senses to be captivated by the amazing sunset.
