Las Palmas

The capital of Gran Canaria and bustling holiday resort, 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 line the seafront, and there are many interesting sights and museums to visit. The ambience is lively, evident of a population of southern temperament not always taking life at its most serious. Las Palmas' great cultural offerings, attractive festivities and highly recommendable cuisine attract thousand of holidaymakers every year and make for a memorable stay.
