We recommend you to visit the following places
Auditorio de Tenerife
It is often compared to the Sydney Opera House. Auditorio de Tenerife provides excellent acoustics which is claimed to be one of the best in the world. Be sure to visit this architectural masterpiece!
Iglesia de la Concepción
This Church of the Immaculate Conception is the main architectural landmark of the island. Its construction began immediately after the conquest of the island by the conquistadors in the 15th century. A massive bell tower with a belfry and a colonnade can be seen from anywhere in the city.
The Holy Cross, stored in the centre of the silver altar, is the main local religious gem. The city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (which means "Holy Cross of Tenerife") owes its name to this ancient relic of 1494.
Plaza de Espana
It is the largest local square, the main element of which is a cross-shaped monument dedicated to the victims of the Spanish Civil War. There is a circular observation deck located at the top of the structure. Plaza de Espana is decorated with a huge fountain full of ocean water.

Royal Sanctuary of the Christ of La Laguna
It's one of the major pilgrimage sites for Catholics located on the Canary Islands. The church is famous for keeping the symbol of the city—an image of crucified Jesus Christ which is considered miraculous. Since 2014, the church has housed an exact replica of the Shroud of Turin.

Observation Deck (Mirador de Playa de las Teresitas)

This is an exceptional monument of military architecture of Spain, also known as the Black Castle. The fortress has protected the inhabitants of the city from enemies for more than three centuries. Nowadays, it's a popular tourist attraction. Annually, the historical reconstruction of the battle is organized here in memory of the unsuccessful attempt of the British squadron to capture Tenerife.

Tips and tricks
In Tenerife, cards are accepted everywhere except for public transport and markets. Local banks charge a commission for currency exchange, so it would be better to buy euros in advance in order to save money. We recommend you to have some cash in small bills of 10-20 euros (sellers do not always have change).
Many shops close for siesta from 1 PM to 5 PM. On Sundays, they are open until 3 PM only.
Tenerife is a special economic zone: many goods are much cheaper here than in mainland Spain. The largest shopping centres are located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Alcampo la Villa Shopping Center, El Corte Inglés, and Centro Comercial Meridiano are the most popular ones. Sales happen twice a year (in early winter and in mid-summer the discounts can reach 60-70%).
Be sure to buy local products as souvenirs for your family and friends. Choose such goods as natural cosmetics, volcanic wine, and palm honey. Cigars are also perfect as a souvenir. Canary tobacco is of high quality as the climate of Tenerife is excellent for its cultivation.
For traditional Spanish delicacies, visit the main market of the island called Nuestra Señora de Africa where you will find jamon, cheese, seafood, turron, and wine. The market is open daily from 8 AM to 2 PM.
Check out the guachinches to enjoy both local wine and traditional Canarian cuisine at affordable prices.
