House of the Balconies

A showcase of traditional Canarian history and culture.

La Casa de los Balcones is located in the town of La Orotava, a village barely changed since the 17th century, with its traditional Canarian architecture a marvelous time capsule of the island's history and culture. This museum is a perfect example - behind its handsome balcony you'll find one of Tenerife's greatest collections of handicrafts, and it's also one of the key places to learn about local customs and traditions. Here, too, you'll learn about the aboriginal culture which over the centuries blended with the Spanish.
