Cheap Holidays in Las Palmas - The Capital of Gran Canaria
Las Palmas is the capital of Gran Canaria and a very cosmopolitan city. Its a great place for cheap holidays, but has many industries outside of tourism. It was one of the busiest ports in the world for years up until quite recently too. The Barrio de la Vegueta is a lovely part of the town, with many houses that would look more at home in South America. There’s an interesting museum your children will like because it has mummified remains and human skulls in it. It’s the Canaries Museum or ‘Museo Canario’ as it’s known locally. The Casa de Colon is a great museum too.
