Entitled – Teneriffe. Grand Place De Santa Cruz.
Below the picture an inscription reads:
Teneriffe. – The city lies in the north-east corner of the island of Teneriffe, and has been the capital of the Canaries since 1821. Santa Cruz is a pleasant and picturesque town, whose leading characteristics are handsome balconies, cool, shady patios, and quaint nooks and corners. There is a gradual rise towards the back of the city, where a pleasant avenue of pepper trees and geraniums commands a beautiful view of the town, with the two church towers conspicuous, and the Grand Canary dimly visible on the horizon. On the north and north-west lie the arid ridges of Anaga, promontory, while on the west and south the land rises in a great slope towards the Lagun and the mountains round the Peak, the latter being scarcely visible from the city. The best part of the town is in the centre and near the hotels. Among the public buildings in Santa Cruz may be mentioned the Town Hall, the Theatre, Market Place, Barracks, and Military Governor’s Palace, which is on the Plaza Weyler, at the top of the town. The Civil Hospital, too, is a most excellent institution, in which a private room and medical attendance can be secured for about 6s. a day. The stone-paved Plaza de la Constitucion is the favourite promenade in the evening. The population of Santa Cruz numbers 20,000 inhabitants, and it may be truly said that this beautiful little city is an ideal place of residence for invalids and those who are harassed by the cares of this world. A fine band plays in the Alameda del Principe Alfonso, which is behind the Iglesia de San Francisco, and is a shady square planted with Indian laurels.
