A Visit to the Iberoamerican Art Museum in La Orotava

A trip to La Orotava is always a pleasure and quite often a surprise. No matter how many times I go, there’s always something else to see and depending on the season, it could be something really special, like the flower carpets for Corpus Christie or the belènes trail for Christmas. A few months ago Jack and I visited the Iberoamerican Museum for the first time since its refurbishment and we spent a happy hour amidst some fascinating exhibits.

Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
