Agatha Christie and her visit to Puerto de La Cruz in 1927.

anglican churchagatha travelled to PuertoToday  some groups of 3º ESO students and their teachers had a nice walk in El Puerto de la Cruz. We Started the tour at the Anglican Church. Mr. Ramón Michán, a very nice experienced and friendly volunteer from Puerto de la Cruz, explained to us about The Anglican church, and also the Grand Hotel Taoro. So many curiosities and anecdotes! How different must have been then!

We ended up in Casa Litre, and the beautiful gardens there. The famous writer Agatha Christie spent a few weeks on this area, in the year 1927, after some personal life difficulties she had encountered. It was a place for her to get over her health problems.

Here she wrote the book The Mysterious Mr Queen and also, one of Mrs Marple’s Stories. Apparently, there is a story told there which is really interesting. A couple meets there for the first time and then…  Sorry!  You will have to read the book to know about that Mysterious Mr Quin. But the story took place here where this couple of students are!

Danish Students visit our High School

Captura de pantalla 2017-12-16 a las 10.34.14Fifteen students from Stövring Gymnasium in Denmark visited us from 23rd to the 30th of November. It has been a great experience; on the whole thirty students sharing a week full of activities and friendship. They enjoyed in our protected natural areas such as The Teide National Park, The Centennial Forest in Agua García, and they even travelled to Los Cristianos to try and locate some whales and dolphins.  Other beaches were also part of their afternoon visits. Of course they enjoyed touring  La Laguna and Santa Cruz too, and doing some shopping!! Getting to know about other cultures and places is the best way to become more tolerant and we hope we can have the opportunity to go on with this exchange in years to come. Thanks to all the participants for the warmth and friendliness you have treated your guests!
