I am really happy that I found this website. In May 2002 I traveled with a group of Argentinean artisans. We exhibited our work in the centre for documentation and research for craftwork in Spain and Latin-America, located in San Francisco street, number 5. I fell in love with that place, magical. Its people are simple, hospitable, and beautiful.
I remember the owner of the bar in front of the convent, a great persom, I apologize for forgetting his name, that greeted me with a big smile and saying “Here comes the “boluda”, making reference to our way of speaking in Argentina. If you know him please send my regards and thanks for giving me hot water to prepare my mate.
When I traveled there it was Corpus Christi, wow, you cannot miss the show, every inhabitant becomes a talented painter, making beautiful drawings with petals and colorful sand and converting the pebbled street into a beautiful carpet.
I am dying to go back; to walk along the narrow streets, to be part of the celebration of San Isidro. I was very happy there. Each corner of La Orotava has a place in my heart. I love them and I really hope I can go back there.
