Tenerife el Sauzal the halfway house between Puerto de la Cruz and Santa Cruz.
Tenerife El Sauzal is a town and a municipality on the north West Coast of Tenerife.
It's proud to hold the denomination of origin (DO) Tacoronte Acentejo
for its wines together with Tacoronte and La Matanza de Acentejo.
Much of El Sauzal is rural where white grapes grow to an altitude of 1000 feet above the sea.
Tenerife El Sauzal
Its region is flanked by Mount Teide as well as by a steeply descending green and sun kissed Atlantic West Coast near Punta del Sol.
A wonderful Rambla hiking path Las Breñas exists on its coast besides good Senderos to walk its forests.
El Sauzal is said to be the cleanest Tenerife metropolis thanks to its rigorous and progressive town hall management in Calle Constitución, 3 Tel:922 570000 with PC 38360.
Near the Town Hall is also where several Titsa buses take you to Tacoronte, San Cristóbal de la Laguna or Puerto de la Cruz.

Christmas at Tenerife el Sauzal.
Public Christmas tree
A tall Pine Christmas tree
is not to be missed behind Saint Peter Church between December and January 13. Gift parcels in all colors swing merrily from its branches.
Culture with music, dance and exhibitions play a big role during the festive season around Christmas in this rural town of Northwest Tenerife.
Tenerife nativity scene
A mesmerizing big Tenerife nativity scene
called Belém in Spanish caught our attention in 2012. We spotted it behind windows of the town's co-op. Find it on Plaza del Principe next to the church. Such scenes are part of a yearly town contest.
Most extraordinary Tenerife church dome
The sun is just about setting behind this well restored house of God
with its most unusual roof and tower combination in El Sauzal.
Its brilliant white Spartan Persian dome contrasts with the red clay tiles of its Spanish roofs on lower levels.
It may also remind a mosque in Oman, Northern Africa or Iranian Eastern constructions.
