Triana, the neighbourhood that oozes history

Triana is a lively neighbourhood with a long history among its streets.

If the streets of Triana could talk, they would probably have a million stories to tell about Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This historic neighbourhood has seen the city grow to become one of its most important open commercial areas.

Triana was originally formed as a result of the expansion of another of Las Palmas’ historic neighbourhoods, Vegueta. Always focused on commerce and with the influence of the sea, it soon became one of the city’s landmarks.

If you are from Gran Canaria or you are used to visiting the island, you will surely know that in Triana there is one location that stands out above the rest: the Calle Mayor de Triana. A street full of historic buildings and modernist houses rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th century that give it a very special character. In fact, it is the pedestrian street par excellence in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The truth is that there is so much to see in the neighbourhood that the walk will be quite entertaining. Here you will find magnificent architectural works, such as the Palacete Rodríguez Quebles, the Gabinete Literario, the park and hermitage of San Telmo, the Plaza Cairasco or the Plaza de Hurtado de Mendoza, among other points of interest.

The neighbourhood was also the birthplace of the famous Canarian novelist Benito Pérez Galdós, who left such a deep mark that in Triana you can find the Pérez Galdós House-Museum, which houses the artist’s legacy. You’ll also come across an impressive theatre named after him, the Pérez Galdós Theatre.

Without a doubt, this is a neighbourhood to explore in depth and soak up all its history. You’ll have a hard time deciding which is your favourite building.
