He Aint Heavy He’s Our Brother Pedro
Vilaflor couldn’t be prouder of Hermano Pedro, the great man was always their favourite son even before he became the Canary Island’s first Saint in a 2002 ceremony in Guatamala. It’s no wonder he is everywhere in the charming Tenerife village on the road to Mount Teide.

Hotel Mencey boss on ‘new-look’ Santa Cruz
A DAY-TRIP to Santa Cruz is something enjoyed by many people, both residents and holiday-makers alike because the Island’s capital retains a quaintness and an old-world charm. But it also has the same, old-time views, which many people feel is holding the area back.
