Brief Description

"San Cristóbal de La Laguna, in the Canary Islands, has two nuclei: the original, unplanned Upper Town; and the Lower Town, the first ideal 'city-territory' laid out according to philosophical principles. Its wide streets and open spaces have a number of fine churches and public and private buildings dating from the 16th to the 18th century."


"拉古纳的圣克斯托瓦尔位于加纳利群岛,有两个核心区,一个是原来无规划的“高城”,另一个是经过精心规划的“低城”。“低 城”是第一个依据科学原理布局的理想城市区。城中宽阔的街道、开阔的空间,并建有许多精美的教堂、宏伟高大的公共建筑和各式各样的私人住宅,这些建筑的历 史都可以追溯到公元16世纪至18世纪。"
