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

We walked there from Canteras Beach and took a taxi back for 5 Euros. The streets are interesting: feeling in touch with the past. We viewed Casa Colon which had a art show. It was safe and well lite. Restaurants and shops all over. The architecture was interesting.

Vegueta was a 5-minute walk away from the flat we were renting so we went there everyday for the five days we were in Las Palmas. There was always something new to be discovered in the compact district. Everything from cafés to restaurants, gift shops to tattoo parlours, churches to museums, can be found among the lovely architecture and plazas... More

This is a fairly small "old town" area which includes the impressive Casa de Colon (Columbus' house), the cathedral and local museum. There are a number of attractive buildings and restaurants.
