Itinerary culinary and cultural route Santa Cruz de Tenerife

A walking tour through the most important streets of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, tapas included

Discover the capital of Tenerife on a cultural and culinary walking tour, lasting about 3 hours, through Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Discover with an expert guide how the history shaped the capital. Start your walking tour at the Alameda del Muelle esplanade. Visit Plaza de España, the largest square in Tenerife, and Plaza de la Candelaria, the square that contributed to the expansion of the port of Santa Cruz, which is surrounded by shops, malls and wine shops, and is presently a hub for shopping and entertainment in the capital.

Get to know the history of the Church of The Immaculate Conception (Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción), the oldest shrine in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and one of its main buildings; be seduced by its splendid northern tower.

Marvel at the transformation of the former Hospital Civil in the capital of Tenerife, which today houses the Museum of Nature and Man, known for the mummies of the Guanches and its culinary offering. In the “El Patio de Las Palmeras” gastrobar, located in the wide Canarian courtyard of this Neo-Classical-style building, you will taste your first tapa.

Be seduced by the elegance of the Tenerife Espacio de las Artes art centre, or TEA for short, with its patios and windows. Opened in 2008, it houses several exhibition rooms, a library and the Tenerife Island Photography Centre. This appealing and dynamic building connects the modern area of the capital with the historic district of the city, which is your next stop.

In the heart of the historic district of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the vibrant Our Lady of Africa Market, opened in 1944. Stroll through the wide courtyards and passageways of this Neo-Colonial building and fall in love with its stands and nice shopkeepers. Taste products which represent genuine Canarian flavours, and which you can buy to keep savouring Tenerife back onboard your cruise ship. The market also has a wide offering of local cuisine dishes. Here, surrounded by Tenerife residents who appreciate local flavours, you will taste your second tapa, different cheeses, wines and, of course, a Canary banana for desert.

Continue your walking tour along the streets of Santa Cruz, strolling through the squares of Plaza de la Isla de la Madera with the Guimerá Theatre, Plaza de El Chicharro, the nerve centre of Santa Cruz, Plaza de El Príncipe with its bandstand, and Plaza de la Iglesia de San Francisco, whose parish church used to house the Santa Cruz Town Hall, the city’s prison and Fire Brigade Headquarters.

Finish your walking tour through Canary Islands’ culture and gastronomy near the quay, with your palate excited and, if you wish, with a bag full of flavours typical of Tenerife.
