The church and ex-convent of San Agustín in Tacoronte is a typical example of the Canarian baroque architecture. These churches were always built of black stones and their exteriors are adorned with beautiful stone facades. Inside you can marvel about the richly decorated Mudejar ceilings.
La Casa del Vino La Baranda is a worthy representative of well conserved historic country estates in Tenerife, Spain. The style of the house is typical of Canary Island buildings of the 17th century, hence including building aspects and details by master craftsmen from Portugal, Castile and Extremadura. The La Baranda estate, including the manor house, was bought by the El Sauzal Town Council in 1989 and got it turned into a Wine Museum.
