LITTLE SPANISH CONTINENT

Short trip to Gran Canaria, the miniature continent

Share this travel

Gran Canaria is the second most populated of the Canary Islands, and is known for being a sort of "miniature continent" thanks to a central mountain range that divides the island into two very different areas in terms of climate and landscape. Discover the capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the picturesque village of Teror before admiring the peaks of the island from Pico de las Nieves at 1,949 metres above sea level and then venturing out on exciting boat tours to discover the wonders of the Canary Islands. [block] During your stay in Gran Canaria you will realize how extraordinary its nature is: we are sure that you will not want to do anything but enjoy the sea and the beautiful beaches, but also the old town of Las Palmas, Vegueta, has some nice surprises in store for you! See historic buildings, such as the Casa Regental and Casa Colon - where Christopher Columbus has lived according to legend- and then visit the Cathedral of Santa Ana whose architecture blends Gothic, Renaissance and Neoclassical elements. Passionate about archeology? Discover the nearby Archaeological Park of Cueva Pintada and its Painted Cave, before taking a trip to Maspalomas, famous for its "sandstorms".
