The adjective "tourist" in all its numbers and genders for a good concordance is the classic epithet for Cross port. Achilles, the one with light feet, Hector, killer of men, Odysseus, prolific in tricks, Puerto de la Cruz, tourist city, all have their reason. Scholars of history and literature have already stopped at the first; in the last one we will extend ourselves, with greater or lesser fortune, throughout this post.
From the outset, let us clarify that the choice of the previous examples is not trivial, nor is it the result of the obsession with the classic of the person who writes this. Since the Port is a port, it has been a receiving city for visitors, in fact, it was here that the first tourists who set foot on the archipelago arrived: as of 1880, tourism begins to have an important weight in the local economy, which is formalized with the construction of the Gran Hotel Taoro in the last years of the century, becoming the flagship of the beginnings of tourism in Puerto de la Cruz, although the authentic tourist boom could be established between the 50s and 80s of the 20th century: it was in the 60s when it became the most important tourist city in the Canary Islands and the hotel and service sector became the predominant occupations of the inhabitants of the port.
This, which could be the story of any tourist city in any area of any Mediterranean country, has its own peculiarities (the others will have them too, but we don't know them, excuse us). Cross port it was still a small fishing town, whose hotel centers had been created from the remodeling of old family houses. The arrival of tourists influences but does not change excessively the idiosyncrasy of a city accustomed to receiving visitors of all kinds on its coast and these visitors, in turn, seem to be infected with the spirit that Puerto de la Cruz has. It was always, and we believe that this is one of the keys, horizontal tourism, a visitor who becomes a citizen more than a guestAt least during your stay. A “citizenship” that comes to be like love, that is eternal while it lasts, but that, decades later, turns out to be the ideal tourist model, coveted and theorized by destinations that knew how to ride the wave of the tourist boom of the sixties but, perhaps, they did not know how to ride it.
Puerto de la Cruz, in favor of tourism, may have modified its physique, part of its architecture in that unstoppable wave that was the boom in the sixties of the last century, but its idiosyncrasy was unbreakable. Distinguished visitors attest to this spirit of which we speak, artists and intellectuals who, choosing the city perhaps as a retreat for a couple of days, extended their stay and became residents of the city. They passed through the Port, yes, but the Port, inevitably, also passed through them.
And, years later, it remains firm in its character, Puerto de la Cruz setting a trend in cultural tourism. Far from being a tourist ghetto, the city prides itself on an enriching coexistence between natives and foreigners, a relationship between equals in which the two parties grow and evolve together. Maybe that is no longer tourism, but something else. The things of Puerto de la Cruz.

On Phe Festival we are very aware of the value of our community. We feel loved and that is something that not everyone can say. The loyalty of the public that accompanies us year after year and that feeling of belonging to a family – a little unstructured, okay, multinuclear, not very traditional… but we can discuss that at another time – is one of the foods of our little heart.
Maybe you wonder what this emotional and even a little cheesy speech is all about and you do well, so here we go: we have to talk. Neither you nor we are what is said to be normal beings, nor do we need to, but since we all have our contradictions and have learned to live with them, and sincerity is the basis of a healthy relationship, we believe that it is fair to transfer one of our concerns: Why don't we make our thing official? Do we make it public? Be proud of Phe, as Phe is proud of you! A touch of merchandise does not commit anything, and this year we have incorporated some novelties for that of renewing or dying and also, why deny it, for giving a little point of originality to the thing. Long live the character!
The classic for any event, group, claim or town hardware store. A t-shirt is the first step to declare your intentions and to show the world your likes and dislikes. Ours, of course, displays the entire luxury poster of this edition on the back.
Hat and cap
At Phe, in addition to you, we are committed to the city that welcomes us, Puerto de la Cruz. Did you think it was a monogamous relationship? When we met I told you that I was a party animal... That's why we thought that a fisherman's hat is the ideal garment that can square this love triangle: current, modern and perfect to feel like one of this city of seafarers.
Cork belt bag
You don't know you need it yet, but yes. The cork belt bag will soon become a classic at seaside festivals. In addition to this highly aesthetic design
Do you know that the cork floats? We do not want to venture anything, but if for whatever reason it ends up in the waters of the Atlantic, your belongings will be safe. Of the liquids that inevitably end up splashing on you at any party, too.
Our relationship is lasting, we know that your love is not a weather vane, that it comes and goes according to the wind. We do not want to be a summer love, but all year round. And, as La Jurado sang, “winter is coming, even if you don't want it”. A sweatshirt to remind us during the cold months? Why not.
With this we hope that you start thinking about it, but you should know that at our merchandising stand there will be some more surprises and, of course, the usual classics: mugs, basic t-shirts, badges, etc. while supplies last, so don't worry.
May our relationship not fall into monotony!
