What's Las Palmas Like?

Las Palmas lies in a scenic setting on the northeastern side of Gran Canaria, with two outstanding beaches. Playa de las Canteras is the oldest resort on the island, and was given a modern makeover with the eye-catching Auditorio Alfredo Kraus concert hall complex constructed in stone. The other city beach, Playa de las Alcaravaneras, offers various water sports activities. The old part of the city, Vegueta, dates from 1478 and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its evocative streets are lined with period houses. Construction of the Santa Ana cathedral began in 1500 and continued for four centuries, which explains the variety of architectural styles. It is one of the few cathedrals that includes a handy elevator for sightseers. The Museo Canario is devoted to the history and culture of the islands before the arrival of the Spanish, while the elegant 15th-century Casa-Museo de Colon has exhibits tracing the voyages of Columbus. Las Palmas hotels offer an ideal base for exploring Gran Canaria.
