Las Palmas

The capital of Gran Canaria, Las Palmas is situated at the northeast tip of the island, between two long stretches of beach. The city was founded in 1478 and was the spot where Christopher Columbus began each of his voyages to the Americas. Much of the original Vegueta district remains behind the modern apartment blocks, which run along the seashore, and there are several fascinating sights and museums to visit.

The ambience is busy, with numerous bars, cafe’s and restaurants available for visitors. This city’s great cultural offerings, charming festivities and highly recommendable cuisine will make for an enjoyable stay.
