The Churchs of Tenerife are maybe the most popular attractions this island has. Most Churchs date back to the 16th century and were built to spread the Catholic religion around the Canary Islands. Spanish conquerors brought their religion, traditions and culture to Tenerife, so they ordered to build many churches and small shrines to provide religious services to Spaniards and local people alike. Most of these churches turned into current cathedrals and museums. Local people work hard to have them all well-kept, since they represent an important part of Tenerife’s history.
Most tourists visit these Iglesias to see the wonderful pieces of art they have kept. Many famous Spanish artists have left a sample of their art in Tenerife, so one can see several paintings and sculptures inside many churches. Each Iglesia of Tenerife is an architectural masterpiece; it’s easy to find churches with Baroque, Renaissance, Gothic, neo-Classic and Moorish style. The Iglesias of Tenerife are a good start point for any city tour, they have many interesting things to show and they all carry a rich vestige of the history of Tenerife. If you visit Tenerife and missits churches, your trip will not be complete. You’ll find useful information about each Iglesia in the brochures offered in the tourist information office.
