What to do in Santa Cruz

Palacio Insular de Tenerife

Palacio Insular de Tenerife (Insular Palace of Tenerife) is the home of the governing body of the island. One of the towering structures in the city, it dates back to between the 1930s and 1940s and is easily recognizable for its tower clock, which is similar to other city halls. Designed by architect Jose Enrique Marrero Regalado, the building houses art collections, including those of Canarian painter Jose Aguilar.

Triunfo de la Candelaria/Obelisco de la Candelaria

One of the major monuments in the city, Triunfo de la Candelaria, also known as Obelisco de la Candelaria, can be found at Plaza de la Candelaria, which is a square in Santa Cruz. The sculpture is a homage to the Virgin of Candelaria, which is the patron saint of the Canary Islands. During Fiestas de Mayo in the month of May, locals flock here to offer flowers at the foot of the structure.

Auditorio de Tenerife

One of the highlights of Santa Cruz de Tenerife tours, this impressive auditorium is hard to miss because its unique, modern design will easily catch your attention. Designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, it’s beautifully situated on the Los Llanos waterfront, connecting the city to the ocean. The striking structure boasts a state-of-the-art design characterized by a dramatic sweeping roof which resembles a crashing wave. It's equally stunning at night, as the topmost roof glows with tiny lights.

Inside, the architectural gem is also a sight to behold, making your tour or watching a performance more delightful. You can also enjoy a drink in the cafe here or take as many artsy shots as you can.

Museo de la Naturaleza

If you want to learn more about Tenerife's history during your excursions from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, this is the ideal place for you. The museum is where you can find significant archaeological treasures from the Pre-Castillan Canary Islands. The Guanche mummies are the main attractions here, and the museum is internationally renowned for its modern methods of presentation of mummies.

Plaza de Espana

If you simply want to relax and enjoy the city sights during your Santa Cruz excursion, this largest square in the city is your best bet. Here you can simply sit and watch people pass by or admire the waterfall, the artificial lake, or the nearby monuments.
