Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary archipelago in terms of size. In the north-eastern part of the island is located its main town named Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Just like all small island towns, this town is not an industrial center, and so it focuses all efforts on the development of tourism infrastructure and agricultural activities.
Santa Cruz is located near the highest mountain in Spain – Teide. This is an extremely beautiful area with a rich diversity of fauna and landscapes. The beaches of the city are dotted with volcanic sand imported from Africa. You can explore the cultural life of Santa Cruz by visiting the local Museum of Fine Arts; Museum of Man and Nature exhibits a collection of items about the history of the indigenous people – Guang; finally, the local Almando Military Museum features the exhibition that tells the story of the Canary Islands. The most ancient landmarks of the city are Parque de Sanabria-Tarsi with the baroque church of San Francisco, an ancient church named Church de la Concepcion with an added bell tower, and Gummer Theater. Auditorium de Tenerife Concert Hall is considered the symbol of Santa Cruz. It was built in 2003.
