(businesspress24) - There, soldiers and kings, then a visit to one (or all!) of these historic sites will be a holiday highlight for them.

Of course, Santa Cruz has so much for families to do, from its excellent Blue Flag beaches to a wide range of child-friendly activities, that it may seem hard to fit all the activities in. But with no fewer than four castles or fortresses in the town (which have been declared Assets of Cultural Interest) there are plenty to choose from so see which ones peak your child

Castillo de San Juan

One of the most striking fortresses in the historic port is the Castle of San Juan Bautista (known locally as Castillo Negro thanks to the black stone used in its construction), the site has a gruesome history as an important site in the African slave trade. The round structure was originally built in the 17th century to protect the port

El Castillo de San Cristo de Paso Alto

Built as a gun battery in 1528, and then remodelled into a castle in the 17th century, this is one of the oldest fortresses on the island. The fortification was home to as many as 15 cannons and 55 artillery men, who all played a part in defending the island of Tenerife from invasion by Nelson and the English fleet. Unfortunately in 1950 much of the structure was demolished to make way for a new road, but the gun platform remains and is now a great vantage point for taking in wonderful ocean views.
