Vacation Travel Guide

Auditorio de Tenerife featuring modern architecture

Enjoy performances from world-class musicians, dancers and opera companies, and appreciate the stunning, curvy design of Tenerife’s premier arts venue.

Auditorio de Tenerife is one of the most popular music venues on the island, but it is also one of its most iconic sights. If you walk along the waterfront in Santa Cruz de Tenerife you will find it hard to miss this eye-catching piece of architecture. An elegant curve of white concrete arches over the main building, reflecting the sailing history of the island. Take photos of the striking building before returning here to enjoy something from the eclectic, artistic program.

Stand beneath the building, which was designed by Santiago Calatrava, and look upward. The building stands at 190 feet (58 meters) tall and consists of three sections, the “sail,” “wings,” and “nut,” which contains the auditorium. The overall look is reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. The building is backed by a peaceful harbor, which makes for a great photograph of the town’s waterfront area.

Join a multilingual tour of the building to find out more about the structure and what goes on behind the scenes during a show. Stand on the modern stage and imagine performing in front of a full house. The geometric shapes on the sloping white ceiling seem to be folded like a piece of elegant origami.

Buy a ticket to one of the shows here. The main auditorium features state-of-the-art technology for the best sound. Tenerife Symphony Orchestra regularly play here, as well as touring orchestras from around the world. Watch dance, magic and opera performances in this iconic venue.

Relax with a drink in the on-site café and bar. Take a seat in the spacious main entrance area and enjoy the ambiance of this modern venue.

Auditorio de Tenerife is in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, just a 15-minute drive away from Tenerife Norte Airport. Park your car in the spaces which are just a short walk away along the harbor, next to the Cesar Manrique Maritime Park. Visit the auditorio’s website to find out what is playing at this celebrated venue.
