History and art in the capital of Tenerife
Santa Cruz de Tenerife, capital of Tenerife, is located in the northeast of the island. Its pleasant climate and its open air shopping areas make it a perfect city for strolling around and enjoying great days shopping. Among its avenues and parks are sculptures by the likes of Henry Moore and its old quarters are home to historical buildings, such as the church of the Immaculate Conception or the Carta Palace. A must is a break for something to eat in La Noria Street.
XXI century architecture along with works by César Manrique
Historical Santa Cruz is perfectly complemented by renowned architectural works, like the Auditorium of Tenerife, the Trade Fair Park (Recinto Ferial) or the Tenerife Arts and Culture building (Tenerife Espacio de las Artes). A visit to these buildings is the perfect complement to a day’s relaxation in César Manrique Maritime Park (Parque Marítimo) where the sun and the pool can be enjoyed all year round.
