The capital of Tenerife sits at the north of the island and is called Santa Cruz, which means Holy Cross. On entering the city you will become aware of its industrial landscape and huge port which has played host to the QE2 and more recently the QM2. Beyond the important industrial area you will find a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that offers great shopping, wonderful museums and beautiful parks. One of the best parks has to be the Parque Municipal García Sanabria, which was laid out in the 1920s and is full of exotic plants, trees, flowers and fountains. The city is also home to a great lido (Parque Marítimo) with numerous pools overlooking the sea. The lido is situated next to the impressive Auditorio, an architectural delight, reminiscent of a ship's sail and covered in millions white tiles which reflect in the abundant sunshine.


There are some useful Spanish words that we have put on this website here!

We have also put together the following Spanish phrases for you to learn for when you visit Tenerife. We will send you some more in our next newsletter.

Which places are really worth visiting. Where to find the cheapest flights, Tenerife hotels and holidays. Insider information written by people who live in Tenerife.

Tenerife holidays have been enjoyed by millions of people for over a 100 years.
