Why La Paz Tenerife is lovely for all sorts of walks.

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape
La Paz Tenerife is a pleasure for strolling in town, downtown, out of town but, not really 'uptown'.

Why?

The road which leads up to it from Puerto de la Cruz downtown is a bit on the steep side.

This suburb called La Paz for short is a northern suburb of Puerto de la Cruz.

This hamlet named 'Peace' (la Paz) was built on a hill where more wind sings in palm trees. Mount Teide looks on from behind green slopes that are densely covered with pines. Most stunning ocean views and scenic walks are another plus. I would guess that La Paz of El Puerto is about 100 m above sea level just like Taoro Park.

Actually, you can see the former Taoro Hotel and Casino well when you walk down the picturesque and partly steep Calzada de Las Cabras. (goats' path). The photo was taken during a descent by Calle Leopoldo Cólogan Zulueta.

The rose park at the Canary Center

Everything grows in this Northern suburb of Puerto de la Cruz. Even the most magnificent roses.

History of the most trendy suburb of Puerto de la Cruz

My tax adviser of 'Gestores Bernat' told me that her parents still remember la Paz when hardly more than its chapel Ermita San Amaro and bananas were there.

That was before an astro physics event in 1985. From then on, this location became a craze for real estate investment. Tall cranes helped to give birth to one hotel after the other.

Nothing gives away the amazing surprises of the Spa Hotel Botanico when you see from the street.

In that hotel, more than one black swan lives happily in a subtropical garden by a Thai lake.

Carps swim under a Japanese bridge where oriental statues add to the Asian splendor.

This 5 star building complex which once looked like a regular mansion came into being after the astronomy event in the Eighties of century XX when business magnates, scientists, as well as kings and queens of Europe came to visit. Now, its high class Spa garden with oriental treatments where Koi fish are part of the exotic make up is one of the oldest Tenerife luxury tourist enclaves. By the way, those were the days when the hotel's owner Wolfgang Kiessling started to put the entertaining Loro Parque shows onto world maps.

Not to miss Abaco La Paz Tenerife

I should add one must see which is the Ábaco with museum, cocktail bar and the occasional classical concert. Casa Grande Ábaco is near a banana plantation, just up the road from the Cupola Mall of La Paz and the famous 'Botanico' botanical gardens. Last time I went there was with my daughter and my son in law who love going out at Abaco for the occasional sun downer.

The Agatha Christie link of La Paz

Agatha Christi has a street named after her in La Paz of Puerto de la Cruz. It's between Hotel Semiramis and Plaza Mirador Lookout and leads towards the Martianez cliff promenade. Almost every year, a festival in her honor takes place in Puerto de la Cruz at the beginning of winter. More about all this here. By the way, another statue of hers stands at Taoro Park.
