History of the Canaries and the 'Guanches'

New Green Tourist Information Centre
If you have a guide book published before 2008, it will probably be out of date. Mine told me that the Tourist Office was located in the Palacio Insular on Santa Cruz's Plaza de Espana.In fact in the last couple of years the Plaza de Espana has been redesigned and...

Los Roques: Sophisticated dining with a sea view
Los Abrigos is a pretty working fishing port on the South East coast of Tenerife, a favourite place for a day out. While walking along the harbour side we came across this new restaurant Los Roques. It is like a little piece of London transported to Tenerife. We had a simple...
Roma: Strange Local Dishes

Mercado de Nuestra Senora de Africa: Fresh Fruit & Veg
This is the main market of Santa Cruz. Like many markets it is best to go in the morning, in the afternoon it begins to shut up. As with all continental markets we were stunned at the size and apparent quality and freshness of the fruit and veg. None of this "buy now, wait 2...
The Sunday Market in Santa Cruz takes place in the streets between the Cathedral and the Mercado Nuestra Senora de Africa. We strolled through it on our way to the bus station as we went for the bus to San Andres and a busy morning on the beach. It was a much more pleasant...
It Gets Windy!
It gets windy down by the seafront. We were at the Auditorio/Lido area and the wind was so strong it almost blew us off our feet - and being so close to the sea that wasn't a good idea!
In the city, amongst its streets it didn't seem so windy, the buildings sheltered us, but at night on the top floor of our hotel we really feared something was going to blow away (particulalry the building!). We got no sleep that night (not really from fear, but from the constant noise of the howlong gales).
Updated Apr 3, 2005
As I mentioned before, the old town area is the most picturesque part of town having a small maze of streets filled with colourful and interesting buildings, like the Calle La Carrera and the other streets just off the main square.. We wandered largely without a guide book...
San Cristobel De La Laguna to give it its full and complete name is just 20 minutes by bus from Santa Cruz. La Laguna was the first capital of Tenerife, holding that title for some 200 years until Santa Cruz took over in the 1920's. It's also the second largest city of...
