Plaza de España
Santa Cruz’s largest public square was built atop the ruins of the 16th-century San Cristóbal Castle. Visitors can still see vestiges of the castle walls in a small museum beneath the square that also contains a cannon called El Tigre, which supposedly fired a famous shot that amputated Admiral Horatio Nelson’s arm. Above ground, the square is a popular park with a vast fountain, vertical gardens and a monument overlooking the waterfront.
