Within walking distance of the cruise ship terminal. The amount of flowers seems to vary year to year but in December 2018 there was an abundance of flowers and some balconies that were previously bare had flowers and plants. Very pleasant area to just sit...More

This is a small, architecturally interesting area on the seafront. Even in December, the balconies are beautifully decorated with flowers in full bloom. Definitely worth a visit to see any time of year.

Santa Cruz is a lovely little town anyway but the balconies are worth looking for along the front (near the castle) for the photo opportunity!

These few, pretty houses sit on the seafront, near the main street ( calle o'Daly). Even though there are just half a dozen of them, there are still very pleasant and worth the small detour!

So beautiful and colourful. You dont need much time here but you can appreciate the uniqueness and elegance. We noticed some street art on some of the buildings and one or two looked not so well maintained. Such as shame.

Small historic row of preserved houses, turned shops and restaurants, set back from the busy seafront road. All painted slightly different, and with contrasting architectural aspects. Each building has a uniquely styled first floor balcony - it makes for a very picturesque resorted site. A...More

A very Spanish city with only a few tacky tourist shops . Otherwise very Spanish. A very pleasant walk to look at the fabulous historic balconies and bespoke shops. Worth a visit!
