Tenerife

Overview

Introduction

Santa Cruz is the largest city on Tenerife, which is the largest island in the Canary Islands chain. The harbor is a major source of revenue and is often a stop on cruises between Europe and the Caribbean. Santa Cruz hosts one of the world's largest Carnivals, second only to the festival held in Rio de Janeiro.

The island capital itself is an elegant city of wide avenues, intimate plazas, modern sculptures and flower-filled parks. It's a good place to visit a museum or art gallery or simply wander around and take in the colonial architecture of its older buildings.
