Our last day with the high-powered VW Polo, we decided to burn up the motorway and visit the old capital and second most populous city of Tenerife, San Cristóbal de La Laguna. The town was founded in 1497 by Alonso Fernández de Lugo, and gets its name from the shallow lake that was there and was subsequently drained in 1837.
