Carnaval on Tenerife - La Laguna

I just love La Laguna’s ‘Carnaval’ poster and theme, ‘The Legend of Count Dracula’. The city’s old atmospheric streets are perfect for a bit of cape swirling and its shadowy corners ideal for lurking vampires. I’m willing to bet there’ll also be plenty of neck biting going on as well. The main celebrations take place in the La Verdellada district.
