Plaza España

Square in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The majority of Santa Cruz’ sights and museums are within easy walking distance of the revamped waterfront Plaza España, with its huge circular wading pool plus fountain that spouts four times a day (indicating high and low tides). The pool makes for excellent photographs in the early morning or late afternoon, with the architecture reflected in the water.

The city's primary pedestrian shopping area, pedestrianised Calle Castillo, is just west of here.
