Great weather, food, surfing, diving, culture and architecture are just some of the reasons to visit Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria not only stands out for its unbeatable weather, but it is also a cosmopolitan, modern city that maintains numerous architectural examples from its interesting colonial past, scattered among new buildings, and has institutions and museums dedicated to protecting the Canarian identity and culture. Facing the sea, the city has a bustling port and several city beaches, such as Las Canteras: over three kilometres of golden sand, a natural reef and a splendid ocean that draws surfers and divers who take advantage of frequent Las Palmas de Gran Canaria holiday package deals.
The origin of the city lies in the district of La Vegueta, as seen in the numerous historical buildings that surround its colourful, cheerful streets. The cathedral of Santa Ana is the best example of Canarian architecture, with its curious combination of styles, the result of almost two centuries of construction. In the surrounding area, visit the House of Columbus and explore the pre-Hispanic past of the islands in the Canary Island Museum.
Other areas you can't miss are the fishing district of San Cristóbal, where you can sample exquisite, freshly caught fish, and Ciudad Jardín, with its stately ambience and characteristic spots such as the curious architectural complex Pueblo Canario.
Although the climate lets visitors enjoy the island all year round, if you find a Las Palmas de Gran Canaria holiday package deal for carnival, you'll be able to witness one of the best carnival celebrations in Spain.
If you opt for a flight + hotel to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria package, you'll land in the airport of Gran Canaria, located around 25 kilometres from the city. Once on the island, you can travel to other islands in the archipelago by boat.
