Local colour and photo ops galore - and typical products to buy, as well
Historic market, even more historic building
Santa Cruz's historic, traditional covered market specialising in produce, meat, and fish, has been operating since 1886 in the onetime Hospital of Our Lady of Sorrows, built on Avenida de El Puente in the early 16th century. Behind its elegant façade and lovely entryway, crowned with a semicircular pediment, you can also find comestibles such as nuts, traditional Canarian sauces, sweets, cheeses, and wines. Even if you don't buy anything, watching locals doing their marketing - and grabbing some colourful photo ops - makes a visit here well worthwhile.
