Guided tour of the historic centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is full of history. In its oldest streets you can breathe everything that, years ago, turned it into the most renowned destination of the Canary Islands. Today, Santa Cruz is culture, tradition and heritage, but what was it like before? To find out and to get to know all of its history, don’t miss this 2-hour tour accompanied by an official guide.

Santa Cruz, a unique story

The Guanches, aborigines of Tenerife, are the starting point. When the Castilian conquest took place at the end of the 15th century, Santa Cruz de Tenerife was not the main city of the island, but its strategic location for merchant ships sailing between Africa, Europe and America soon made it the city of reference. It grew, grew and grew despite being under constant attack by pirates and corsairs, until it became the capital of Tenerife to this day. Do you want to know first-hand its legends, myths, history and anecdotes?
