Just opposite the Corte Ingles you will see one more shopping center – Tres de Mayo.

If you checked the brands Puruficación García and Adolfo Domínguez in El Corte Ingles shopping center and liked them, remember to visit Tres de Mayo shopping center as well, as there you will find the bigger stores of these brands with more choice.

If you have some more time, walk till Calle Castillo, which is situated near Plaza España. So you can see a bit of the city and combine it with the shopping.

In Calle Castillo are located all the famous brands, which we already mentioned above: Massimo Dutti, H&M, Mango, Bimba y Lola and others.

 

Shopping in La Laguna

The first place for shopping in La Laguna we are going to name is Al Campo (Auchan). If you have a car, you can visit it for some clothes, shoes and cosmetics brands (even though they are not presented there exclusively and can be found in many other more accessible places).

But what Al Campo is really worth visiting for is food and wine. If you want to buy local meat products, cheese and wine there you can find a really good choice.

 

To visit La Laguna only for shopping we don’t recommend, as there are almost no shops and brands, which are not presented in Las Americas or Santa Cruz. But if you are going to visit La Laguna for sightseeing, you can also make some shopping there.

Many famous Spanish brands are presented in the center of La Laguna, on the streets between the cathedral (Catedral de La Laguna) and the church (Iglesia-Parroquia Matriz de Ntra Sra de La Concepción).

 

Shopping in Puerto de la Cruz

 

As in case of La Laguna, Puerto de la Cruz is first of all the place to visit for sightseeing. Go there to visit Loro Parque, to enjoy Canarian atmosphere and beautiful nature.

In the center of the city you can find some shops as well, so you can combine sightseeing with some shopping.

 

Shopping in La Orotava

 

La Villa shopping center

One more shopping center which is worth mentioning in our guide is La Villa shopping center. In this huge mall you will find one more Al Campo and some clothes, shoes, accessories, sports, cosmetics and other shops.

The brands you can purchase there are:

  • Benetton
  • Massimo Dutti,
  • Zara
  • Pull&Bear
  • Punto Roma
  • Bershka
  • Springfield
  • Stradivarius
  • Women’s secret

 

We hope our guide will be useful for you and will help you to make a productive shopping. One more thing you probably need to know is that many shops in Tenerife North (if it is not a big shopping center) are closed for siesta and almost nothing is working on Sundays, so keep it in mind while planning your shopping there.
