Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Our rating: 7.20
Overall rating:
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is not a popular tourist destination on the island of Tenerife. We stayed here for three nights due to the well-developed infrastructure and convenient location. Stayed in the hotel Silken Atlántida Santa Cruz (booking.com).

The capital is known as a venue for one of the biggest carnivals in the world, which involved up to a million people each year (http://carnavaldetenerife.com).

Despite the location on the coast, there is no promenade in the city. 90% of the shoreline occupied by the port. This is clearly seen from the observation deck Mirador La Cruz, which can be reached by car.

Unfortunately, ports are the problem of many southern cities.

Therefore, just a few hundred meters for the promenade.

In order to somehow fix that, was built a symbol of the city and all the Canary Islands - Auditorio de Tenerife. Spain is famous for its architectural innovations, so it is not surprising.

The hill in the distance is a botanical garden. Between it and the opera are the outdoor pools. Two high houses are the highest twin towers in Spain (120 meters).

There is no beach in the city. Although this is not a problem, as the best beach on the island - Las Teresitas is not far away.

An unusual attraction behind the opera - pictures on the rocks.

Districts around the Opera are not touristic. But if you come for shopping, then it's the right place. There is also a bus station and the ferry ticket office not far from the Auditorio.
