There are not many places in the Canary Islands which have a ‘city feel’, but Las Palmas is one such place, and as a result it is full of attractions ranging from fascinating museums to its world famous street carnivals.
The city is full of winding streets, meaning there is the opportunity to simply leave your hotel and go exploring, without knowing the joys which hide around every corner. Take a look at some of the top attractions in Las Palmas.
What holiday would be complete without a look at some skulls and mummified remains? This is the place to do that and learn about the fascinating culture and history of Gran Canaria. Don’t forget that there’s the remarkable aboriginal mystery to uncover. The museum is over 100 years old and has many aboriginal artefacts. The ‘preservation of corpses’ room is room 6
The House of Columbus or ‘Casa de Colon’ is a museum that, not surprisingly, used to be Christopher Columbus’s house. It celebrates the Canary Islands and their relationship with America. There are loads of objects and documents going back over 500 years that will be of great interest to any sea farers
