Fodor's Review

The heart of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the Plaza de España. The cross in the plaza is a monument to those who died in the Spanish Civil War, which was actually launched from Tenerife by General Franco during his exile here. For two weeks before Lent each year, during Carnaval, Santa Cruz throbs to a Latin beat emanating from this plaza. Castillo San Cristóbal and the tourist office are both here.
