The Plaza de España is located in the capital of the province, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It is the largest square of all the Canary Islands.

It was built in 1929 on the Castillo de San Cristóbal, the first major fortification for the defence of Santa Cruz against piracy.

Today you can visit some of its walls accessible through an underground gallery located under the square. The Plaza de España is bordered to the north by the Plaza de la Alameda del Duque de Santa Elena, to the south by the Post Office buildings and the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, to the east with the Avenida Marítima and Puerto de Santa Cruz de Tenerife;

to the west with the Plaza de La Candelaria, and the building of the Casino de Tenerife.

The Plaza de España, which occupies a space of 5,026 m2, is presided over by the Monument to the Fallen, is a cross-shaped tower with a viewing platform at the top, the base of which contains a now-empty crypt.

This monument was built by the idea of Captain General García Escámez during the Economic Command, after the Civil War. Surrounding the base is a sculptural ensemble designed by Enrique Cejas Zaldívar and Alonso Reyes.

The sketches were signed on 25 October 1944. Both had two months to model them, and at the end of this period the works were exhibited at the Museum of Fine Arts.
