La Orotava, is a municipality located in the north of the island of Tenerife, which has a historic center with great architectural value.

For many, La Orotava is one of the most beautiful towns on the island of Tenerife.

It is located in the middle of the valle of the same name and is noted for its perfectly preserved buildings, which has led to the town centre being declared a Historic-Artistic Ensemble.

The name of this municipality located in the north of Tenerife, which also occupies part of the centre of the island, comes from the name that the Guanches gave to this area, «Arautava» or «Arautapala».

It is the largest municipality of the whole island, with 207.31 km2, and the one with the largest forest area: approximately 78% of Teide National Park is part of the municipality of La Orotava.

This camera offers views from the roof of the Town Hall , a neoclassical building from the mid-19th century.

The Town Hall Square was part, until well into the nineteenth century, of the convent of the Clear Nuns of St. Joseph, under the obedience of the Franciscan Fathers.

The convent became municipal property and finally demolished after the disentailment decree of 1836.

Since 1919, the more than 900 square metres of this square have been used as a canvas on which the monumental carpet of earth from Las Cañadas del Teide, known as the famous «Alfombras de la Orotava«.

The carpet of this square in 2007 won the Guinness World Record for the largest carpet made of sand. Most of the sand with which the carpets are made, comes from Las Cañadas del Teide and its colors are natural, without any subsequent pigmentation. Their motifs are Christian and are made during the Corpus Christi, between May and June.

The carpets are undoubtedly one of the greatest signs of identity of La Orotava, as well as a reason for national and international recognition thanks to the hundreds of thousands of visitors that La Orotava receives each year to see them.
