On our tour of Santa Cruz, we tried to see the church, but were disappointed that we couldn't get to see the inside

Although Santa Cruz does not have a cathedral, this is in nearby La Laguna, this is the largest church in the city. It's tall tower can be seen throughout the city. Situated just a short walk from Plaza Largo next to the ferry and cruise terminal. Although insignificant from the outside, it is well worth a visit.

There is nothing much to say-except that this is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever visited! It is simply gorgeous! The woodwork, the ambiance, the statues, everything, just everything is beautiful! Must see if you ever visit Santa Cruz de Tenerife!

The church is not impressive by it's size like most of the other churches the tourists are used to, but it impressed me with the beautiful ceiling made of pine wood.

You no doubt will have visited grander churches and basilicas in your travels. i know I have. still for this city in this climate it is a beautiful edifice- clean and white and tastefully built. The interior eschews marble in favor of native stone and is very appealing. The stone/wood carvings are magnificent and gilt- edged. Worth a look, especially... More

Jaw droppingly beautiful. If you only visit Santa Cruz once, you must look in on this wonderful old Church, its spire is easy to spot from all over the City.

Bit on the edge of the old town but combine this with a trip to the market. The church is vast and more than a little gloomy even on a summer day. Five aisles wide and loads of side chapels, some fairly crude art works and one or two pretty ceilings.

It is a UNESCO world heritage site within a walking distance from many bus stops. The area has wonderful old churches from the early days of Spaniards in Tenerife,but also it is a trendy shopping area with lots of cafes and restaurants. You can probably spend 2-4 hours there.
