The Plaza de Europa in Puerto de la Cruz was the place chosen so that the citizens of Tenerife and the tourists who were on the island on Saturday, June 24, could enjoy an open day. They could try the best delicacies of the Gastronomy of the archipelago in an event in which there were also exhibitions, contests, tastings, and live music.
