The historic centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, near the port, has the widest variety of shops on the island. Here you can find designer goods, craft shops, perfume stores, electronic goods, tobacco, wine and spirit stores, open-air cafés and restaurants and much more. You can enjoy a pleasant stroll along its many pedestrian zones while doing a little shopping.
There are also many historic buildings, peaceful squares and parks shaded by Palm and Dragon trees and Laurels brought from South America. On Saturday afternoons and Sundays most of the shops are closed.
