In downtown Santa Cruz, the city's main shopping thoroughfare mixes international brands and local independents.
A spot of Canarian shopping
One of Santa Cruz's main shopping thoroughfares, Avenida Pérez Galdós runs between the square and Alféreces Provisionales Plaza and Calle Vieira y Clavijo. It's a pleasant pedestrian street with palm trees running down its median and the city's main shops lining either side, a mix of big international brands and small independent shops selling a variety of merchandise from fashion to antiques. Crafts and souvenirs, too, which makes this a good street to hunt for mementos of your visit to Tenerife. At the end of the avenue you'll find a ton of cafés at which to have a rest and a refuel.
