Tenerife Administrative Districts (Municipalities)
May 16, 2009 Leave a comment
The island of Tenerife is made up of thirty one municipalities.
The growth of the tourist centres and cities has gradually transformed the landscape, but without hiding the charm of the island and its inhabitants. Tourism leaves its mark in the tourist enclaves along the coast, with a more traditional atmosphere in the north and a more cosmopolitan air in the south, but all with modern amenities and a broad range of leisure products available.
Along with the archaeological sites of its Guanche past, the island conserves its own important historical-artistic heritage. Traditional and popular architectural style can be seen in the stately homes, farms and places or worship, but also in simple, rural houses, with their red-tiled roofs. The most representative elements of Canary Island style include the balcony, enhancing the façade and highlighting inner courtyards.
