Here in the island's northwest you'll see tradition framed by an impressive landscape. You can get there by bus and take the opportunity to spend a very worthwhile day roaming the area. In this house-museum in Buenavista del Norte you can get a firsthand sense of traditional rural life hereabouts. It starts with the house itself and its traditional architecture, of course, and continues with photos, everyday objects, and reproductions of objects reflecting the culture and history of the area before the 20th century. Once you've taken all that in, spend some time exploring the environment of La Masca, with its impressive cliffs and traditional houses.
