The capital of the western province of the Canary Islands is a very active port that has 200,000 inhabitants. It is particularly renowned for its artificial beach, Las Teresitas, which stretches over five miles. Should you choose to travel to Garachico,the Plaza de Espana, on the seafront, is very crowded, and the nearby Plaza de la Candelaria opens onto Calle Castillo, the main shopping street. Not far from here, you will see the 16th century church of Nuestra Señora de la Concepción and the Baroque style San Francisco church. It is also worth visiting the colourful market of Nuestra Señora de Africa in the morning, where you will find stalls laden with flowers, fruits and vegetables.
