Spotting the Stars in Santa Cruz

Opposite the Auditorio is the Black Fort, an historic contrast that’s more than 350 years younger. Above the fort is the lush curve of the Palmetum whose palms are framed by snow clad mountains on a warm February afternoon in Tenerife. Off to one side are the colourful circular tanks at the refinery, not the most aesthetic of vistas but at least they’ve made an effort.

Most curious of all are the rocks of a hundred faces.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
