Beautiful old square full of character. Lots of great cafes and restaurants. Lovely place to sit over a glass of wine and soak up the atmosphere.

The principal avenue of Puerto de la Cruz, where you can enjoy a good variety of restaurants. But, besides that, there isn't much more there to do.

This is the place to stroll round, enjoy a coffee, a meal, tapas, people watch. buy groceries, perfume souvenirs, get a taxi, a place fotr kids to enjoy the swings etc. Puert being a Spanish town makes it lively in the evening after the Siesta.

If there is a place to sit and relax and watch the world go by it is here. But when they party around the square make sure your there, It's brilliant eithernway and would recommend for all ages.

This used to be the beating heart of Puerto De La Cruz. Now you will have no problem finding a table in the cafes in and around the square. We used to spend hours 'people watching' but it is now sadly run down and is a meeting point for the 'down and outs' who drink spirits from soft drink cans... More

This was a very charming park a couple of years ago, especially in the evening, with performers that played spanish classic guitars. Now a restaurant close by has completely taken over the park with their very high music. Now you can only visit the park during day.

Plenty of shops and restaurants. Little gardens to relax in. It's by the sea with plenty of seats and benches if you want to rest your feet. Beautiful place to visit

Thank Iris L
