Religious architecture

Traditional Tenerife architecture

Tenerife's official and religious buildings have always portrayed the different styles of their times, from the era immediately after the Spanish conquest (as is the case of churches such as La Concepción in La Laguna), through Baroque and Neoclassical trends to the most contemporary aesthetics. La Laguna and La Orotava – whose town centres are national historic-artistic monuments –, Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz still preserve samples of each of these styles in their oldest and most characteristic streets.
