There are many plans that we can do in this place. A cosmopolitan city open to the sea that we can discover or rediscover for those who already know it.
We cannot talk about Gran Canaria without talking about the neighborhood of Vegueta. Foundational nucleus of the city, declared a National Historic-Artistic Site in April 1973. To walk through its narrow streets is to walk through the history of the island. And its special charm will not leave you indifferent. Here you can find the mythical Casa Colón, a museum established in the 50’s dedicated to Columbus’ expeditions to America. You can also visit the Cathedral of Santa Ana.
It is the main urban beach of the capital where the walks by the sea are the protagonists. It is a privilege to be able to take a bath in the middle of the city. In addition, its bars and restaurants make this place a unique environment.
The main street where you can do your shopping and stroll through the city. It is a few steps from Vegueta and is another small neighborhood with lots of charm. Near this street you can find the Gabinete Literario, a place to enjoy the culture and art of the island.
At 5 minutes from this street we find the Pérez Galdós Theater where you can enjoy a good play. Spending a day in the capital of Gran Canaria means to fill it with special moments. Stroll along the beach, eat in a good restaurant, go shopping and end up watching a play.
The Avenida Mesa y López is a ‘must’ to visit in the capital. A shopping area where you can enjoy a day full of fun. Specifically, it is located in the neighborhoods of Santa Catalina-Canteras, Alcaravaneras and Guanarteme.
Among the plans to do in the capital, we have a wide range of shopping centers where you can enjoy the leisure, gastronomy and shopping of the island. Such as Centro Comercial Las Arenas, Centro Comercial y de Ocio de 7 Palmas, Los Alisios, El Muelle and El Corte Inglés.
