A place you have to visit if you are in Santa Cruz. A special plaza with the "lake" and the flowers. Very beautiful.

This place is very nice to have a walk and just to chill out. This is very typical from this place.The monuments around are nice to see, the negative point is the view of the see, completely hidden by the engines, construction, work unfinished ......More

We used this plaza as a focal point for exploring out from and then returning to base, so to speak. Fairly quiet when we were there which obviously helped. Lots of character in and around it.

This is a great place to meet people because it is right in the centre of the city. Close to all activities and a nice place to relax and look at the water, and take a photo with the I love Santa Cruz sign.

The central point of the city. There are concerts and events during weekends. From this point you can have a walk up the street where are shops and coffee bars.

All streets seem to lead off this square and you need to visit if staying here for any length of time. Dominated by the Cross and large monumental buildings. Good restaurants around as well as tourist information and some lovely promenade.
