Rambla de Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz Avenue), Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Rambla de Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz Avenue), Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The Santa Cruz Avenue began its ramble in 1661. It is still the main road in Santa Cruz de Tenerife today. It goes from Peace Square (Plaza de la Paz) to Anaga Avenue (Avenida de Anaga). There is no lack of interesting sculptures along the way and a sea of bright flowers. The longitudinal center of the avenue is a wide parkway with driving lanes on each side.

The promenade is vast, nearly two kilometers long. It is the lengthiest avenue of its like in the Canary Islands. It is an easy walk from the port. It connects with Garcia Sanabria Park along the way. It is bordered by tall trees. There are benches and kiosks selling magazines and things to eat.

There are large chain stores along the avenue but there are also many side streets for more adventuresome shoppers. While the center mall may be restful, it is still a busy avenue. Still no comparison to a noisy Barcelona Rambla, but there is a tad more serenity.
