Santa Cruz de Tenerife Things to Do: 45 reviews and 63 photos

  Plaza De Espana, Santa Cruz
by steventilly

Plaza de Espana is Santa Cruz's main plaza, dominated by the memorial to the men who fell fighting for Franco during the civil war and by the Cabildo Insular, the rather sombre looking neo-classical building that is the seat of the Island's government. The pair are well matched and make a quite striking sight, though not to everyone's taste.
There's not much else to the plaza, it being taken up largely by a taxi rank and a car park, but the adjacent Plaza de Candelaria offers cafes, shops and outdoor eating.
