Step into the shoes of Christoper Colombus, beautiful buildings. We took the bus from the Las Palmas port to here. Recommend you also pop into the market here too

The nightlife was great! The food and beer were great. 2 euros for a bottle or beer and a tasty tapas was awesome And the women were beautiful!

Vegueta is the most impressive neighborhood of Las Palmas, in fact it is "the old" Las Palmas. The architecture of the old buildings is really wonderful. The most impressive building are The Cathedral Santa Ana and Casa de Colon (the house of Christopher Columbus, when he stayed on the island, he resided in this house). There are also some other...

We walked through/visited La Vegueta as part of our tour of Las Palmas. The buildings are beautiful to look at and the (albeit fairly small) area is worth a stroll around if you're in the area. We parked just outside of the centre and walked through towards Calle Triana, Plaza De Santa Ana and the Cathedral - all very well... More

We visited here to go to the museum where Christopher Columbus lived. It is worth a look to get a snapshot of history and the part the Canary Islands played. The old town is quaint with traditional looking houses, narrow streets and big wooden doorways. Worth a visit.

The old town of Las Palmas is quite a small area but it is very nice. Lots of old buildings, there's a cathedral and the little paths through the old houses are enchanting. There weren't many people there so it felt very secluded.

You have to take a stroll around La Vagueta while visiting Las Palmas. It`s simular to other old tows I have seen in struction and size, but the colours are very different. They bright up the buildings and make the whole area very nice. The cathdral in the heart is also worth seeing!

We enjoyed this part of town but only after we were finally able to find it when our Google maps took us to another place in town which was not the right area. I suggest programming in one of the major road in this area to ensure you're taken to the right spot. Calle Triana is a good one to... More
