On the Belen Trail in La Orotava

Colin is a regular visitor to the Ruta de Belénes in Santa Cruz but I prefer the Ruta de Belénes in La Orotava which is now in its eighth year and has 26 belénes within the town limits, far too many to get round in a single visit. Luckily, six of the best are located close to each other within the old quarter and you can easily add them into a town tour. They’re all free to visit.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
