SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE
Santa Cruz de Tenerife awaits us; capital of the island, is located north-east of the same, houses the headquarters of the Canary Government and groups in its territory multiple commercial activities.
A lively and happy city (home to one of the largest and most spectacular Carnivals in the world) it perfectly matches its pleasing image and commercial areas, making it the perfect city for walking and suitable for long days in exaggerated shopping (Calle Castillo).
Among its streets and parks are sculptures of artists of the caliber of Henry Moore and its historic center houses buildings such as the Concepción church or the Carta building. A gastronomic stop in the calle de La Noria is essential.
The historic Santa Cruz combines perfectly with the great architectural works of the 21st century, such as the Tenerife Auditorium, the “Recinto Ferial” Exhibition Center or the TEA (Tenerife’s Art Space).
A visit to these buildings can be the perfect culmination of a day of relaxation at the César Manrique Maritime Park.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife also offers the delightful Playa de Las Teresitas, a truly enchanting pristine beach offering a huge expanse of golden sand dotted with palm trees.
The beach lies at the foot of the lush forests of the Anaga Mountains, which protect the bay from the winds. The turquoise waters are placid and delicious; those who love activities can play volleyball or take part in aerobic classes, while those who love relaxation can simply bask in the sun.
Every year in February and March, with the arrival of the Carnival, Santa Cruz becomes a party town. For weeks the streets and squares become the stage for immense celebrations.
People come from everywhere, dressed in colorful costumes and join the parades singing until the early hours of the morning. In this period, it is worth visiting the capital city of the island and enjoying the carnival celebrations.
