The Magical Villa of La Orotava
The route is a real journey through time with characters who have made history in the valley of La Orotava. Teobaldo Power or Juan Francisco Franchi Alfaro are some illustrious figures that appear and give greater prominence to events and milestones in which they played a part. Thus, the protagonist ‘Orotava’ also narrates her experience and anecdotes on how she ‘felt and lived’, the granting of the titles that she continues to show with great pride today such as those of ‘Villa’ or that of ‘Very Noble’ and ‘Loyal’. In both routes a tasting is offered with locally sourced products from the island.
