Shopping in Puerto de la Cruz


Avenida de Aguilar y Quesada
by cinetech
Of course there are shops everywhere, but most of what you'll have seen so far are the touristy type.

Only a relatively short walk away from our starting point, if you turn right along the Avenida de Cristobal Colón (the promenade beside the Playa Martiánez), until you reach the Avenida de Aguilar y Quesada, where you want to turn right and begin walking away from the coast with the beach directly behind you.

This wide street has a pedestrian walkway in the centre - the cars go either side - like a park with palm trees and benches all along it. It does have a gentle uphill slope, but it will be down hill coming back!

Three parts of the way along this road, on the left, you'll encounter the Centro Comercial Las Pirámides de Martiánez (Martiánez Shopping Centre). Yeah, it's a shopping mall with a bunch of franchise stores and a branch of the very reputable Mercadona supermarket.

This might seem very ordinary, but I like seeing what other countries' ordinary looks like, which is often a great source of gifts and souvenirs that aren't just made for tourists.
