We went there off-season and found the town deserted. Plaza de Espana was the nicest place to sit and relax. It was calm, rather warm and clean while offering some rather decent views. I have an impression though that I would not like to dine/stay there during the high season.

Best to have a drink/eat at the restaurant by the water. Its a sun trap. Good to watch and waste some chilling out time away

i saw a lot of places with beautifull fountains, and this one to be placed int the middle of Santa Cruz was very poor. I think they should clean it more often.

The square is nice, with an artificial lake in the middle. There are few monuments and the war history museum is there (underground).

Would like to see the fountains running, but overall a nice place to gather and chat. There's a good cafe on the "lakefront" and a well-appointed tourist bureau, both covered in exquisite gardening.

A very long promenade ends in this square. The promenade is full of bences and is shadowed by trees offering a pleasant walk. The square is nice having interesting architecture.

Nice square in the very heart of Santa Cruz, top city attracions only a few minutes away. The square is quite big and open, with a huge centered pool with an high water fountain running at periodic intervals. The pool is surrounded by bars and small restaurants making it an even cozier place with all the outdoor seats where you... More
