In the global framework of La Laguna’s inclusion in the World Heritage List (1999), we must note the classification of different typologies both in the historic centre and in tangible and intangible heritage for their uniqueness and relevance.

There is an array of specific listings, both by the State before the regional autonomies were set up (1983), and from the local government later.

A set of listed BICs (BIC stands for Bien de Interés Cultural, that is, Cultural Heritage Asset) that represents a high portion of the heritage in all its different typologies and is protected by either State or Canarian designation.
