Tour description

Santa Cruz de Tenerife begins its history with the founding, on May 3, 1494. Since then, the port of Santa Cruz was crucial on the routes to the New World, consolidating itself in the 18th century as the most important port in the Canary Islands.

 Since then, the fight for the capital has already been served. Surrounded by internal adversaries (La Laguna, Las Palmas, etc.), as well as external adversaries (pirates, privateers and the British), Santa Cruz managed to build itself with working class labor, the sacrifice of artisans and sailors, as well as the cunning of merchants and merchants.

 We are going to tell you the exciting story of this undefeated town, which defeated the British and aristocrats alike, a city that became the jewel of the Atlantic and that today is the pride of its inhabitants, the chicharreros.

 The visit begins in the Plaza de España and ends in the Plaza de la Fundación, visiting the following places of interest:

  • Plaza de la Candelaria and Palacio Carta
  • Church of Saint Francis of Assisi
  • Friendship Circle XII of January
  • Prince of Asturias Square and Carnival
  • Guimerá Theater and Recova Vieja
  • General Serrador Bridge
  • Our Lady of Africa Market
  • TEA: Tenerife Space of the Arts
  • Noria neighborhood and Concepción Church

 That is why I invite you to live this experience with me, a unique experience in which the 2 hours will be very short. Greetings and I'll wait for you traveler!!
