Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the capital of the island of Tenerife and the political centre for the region of Tenerife which includes the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. It is also the main point of entry for goods and passangers arriving by sea.
The buildings are magnificent, the boutiques are chic and the street cafés are always busy. The historic centre, which also includes a large part of the shops, restaurants, and bars, is pedestrian only. So you can wander around looking up at the beautiful architecture without worrying about getting run over.

I'm sure the flag looks familiar - it's the same as the flag of Scotland!
