Place where you can feel like in south America. And where you can discover history about Columb. Minimum two days!

Easy town to walk around
Jan 2021 • Friends
We took a bus, from Las Palmas port where we were staying to the historical centre. It was covid time, numbers restricted for entry to Christopher Colombus house and Cathedral but all worth seeing. We went up the bell tower, worth the few euros, and amazing views . . . there is a lift up there, so good for mobility issue. A nice day out and plenty to do inside if the weather changes.

museum city
Jan 2021 • Couples
the historic Las Palmas is nicely restored, with all renovated fassades, cobble streets, coffee shops and restaurants and plenty of historic sights. all together nowadays more of a museum as a vivid city, as you hardly see anything but tourists here.

A beautiful part of Las Palmas.
An area oozing charm, character and beautiful architecture.
One can walk and dream in the little old world streets.
Just a great area to visit and savor the atmosphere.
I loved it.

Beautiful historic old town - a must visit
Nov 2020
This little jewel of an area is the authentic Las Palmas - away fro the tourist high-rise areas. The narrow cobbled streets lead you though rows of brightly coloured houses to the cathedral Sant Ana. No visit to Las Palmas is complete without a visit here.

Vegueta a “must” to visit
Aug 2020
The attraction of Gran Canaria is because of being a mini continent of 1500 km2 where you can find beautiful beaches in the south, stunning scenery in the mountainside and the cosmopolitan city of Las Palmas.
Regular comfortable buses to take you both ways.
Vegueta, the old colonial hart of the city where the in 1478 it was founded, is a “ must “ to visit and do it wandering and walking. The cathedral, the Columbus museum, The “ Museo Canario “ with the history of the Guanches etc. Triana the main shopping street is marvelous to brouse in the small boutiques in the side streets.
Your day will be short, but the evening is still great for enjoying enough variety in restaurants. You won’t regret it.
