Recently re-opened after a long refurbishment, is the Pérez Galdós Theatre in Las Palmas. Named after the infamous Spanish Realist Novelist, Benito Pérez Galdós, the theatre has under gone a massive face-lift, which included a controversial extension that cleverly combined the rich historical façade with minimalist modern architecture. A new stage and orchestra pit has also been added, which serves to improve the acoustics and provide the musicians with better visibility. The Pérez Galdós Theatre is at the heart of the Gran Canarian cultural scene and will host some of the best musical events on the island.

The theatre is situated in the Triana, district of Las Palmas, which is definitely worth visiting; here you can find many notable historical buildings as well as the main shopping street of this area. Visitors can look forward to a slice of true Canarian culture, discover cobbled streets overlooked by characteristic intricately carved wooden balconies, then take a seat in one of the pavement cafes, enjoy a 'café con leche' and watch the world go by.

Park / Square

Parque Doramas
(Pueblo Canario)
35005 Las Palmas

Photo Gallery

 

Parque Doramas is a beautiful park that lies in the district of Ciudad Jardin, in the middle of Vegueta and Las Canteras. The park is named after the guanche King Doramas, who fought against the Spanish for a long time, but in the end he was killed in Arucas.

After a day walking around in the city it is great to come here and relax. Sit down on one of the many benches, watch the water cascades and the statues, and explore the beautiful plants and flowers that you can find here.

Located in Parque Doramas is Pueblo Canario. This is a copy of a typical Canarian village. The Canarian painter Néstor de la Torre is the man behind this. Everything is artificial, but it is still a nice place to relax, buy souvenirs and local crafts, or look at traditional shows of dancing and singing.

A monument depicting aboriginal people tumbling over a precipice to escape capture symbolizes the resistance of the Guanche chief Doramas, after whom this park was named, against the Spanish invaders.

Doramas Park itself is a sub-tropical paradise in itself worth a visit. Cascading water features, abundant Canarian flora a terrace cafe and generally a world away from the surrounding city. In the centre of the park is THE hotel to be seen at, Hotel Santa Catalina. Dating back to the 1800s the original Canarian style of the building is quite spectacular and there's a nice terrace to sit out on for morning coffee or afternoon tea.

The Pueblo Canario, located in the beautiful gardens of Doramas Park in the City of Las Palmas, was created by Canarian artist Néstor de la Torre and represents the islands' typical architecture. Each Thursday and Sunday take place colourful folkloristic performances.

It was designed and built in the 1930s by the brothers Néstor and Miguel Fernandez de la Torre to interest tourists in island culture. It is a complex of several traditionally built island houses with the famous wooden carved balconies forming a typical Canary village with gates, turrets and an atrium.

The village boasts a large central square – where twice a week enthusiastic folklore shows take place – surrounded by shops selling local handicrafts and the Bodegón (wine bar) Canario, where you can taste several dishes of the typical Canary.

A pretty and very relaxed place in the heart of a big city, the Pueblo Canario is in spite of its obviously artificial nature well worth a visit!

Opening hours:
Tuesday - Saturday
10.00 - 20.00
Sundays and Holidays 10.30-14.30
Admission: 1,80

In the middle of Las Canteras in the west and the harbour in the east, you find this beautiful park. A lot of the festivities, events and concerts that take place in the city, is located in this park. The carnival (February/march), for example, has it's main stage here, and the park is full of people.

It's a good place to start your sightseeing of Las Palmas, as many tourist buses have their stops here,

In the park you can see a sculpture, placed there by the City, of an old woman feeding the animals. She was actually an old homeless woman living in the park, and her name was Lolita Pluma. Pluma means feather, and she was called like this because she always had plenty of feathers on her from the birds she was feeding.

In the streets around the park are many nice cafés, bars, restaurants and shops. Close to the Elder Museum of Science and Technology, the Parque de Santa Catalina is known for hosting many of the area's most notable carnivals and festivals.

Located next to La Luz and Las Palmas Ports, this park's wide central area is surrounded by the Science Museum, the Elder Building, a play area for children and a modern tourist office.

History

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital of the island. It's located in the north east and set amongst some spectacular natural scenery.

It's surrounded by two open bays with the popular beaches of Playa de las Canteras and Playa de las Alcaravaneras.

Las Palmas was founded in 1478 by the Queen Isabella. Today, it's considered an area of important historical and cultural heritage. From a historical point of view, the most interesting part is the old district of Vegueta, which was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1990.

The town has a very cosmopolitan image and feel. This is largely because it's home to the Puerto de la Luz harbour - one of the most important in Europe. It has a massive infrastructure of hotels and holiday apartments catering to the ever-increasing tourist trade. Since the sixties, the town's population has more than doubled in size. It now has 378.628 inhabitants. (2005)

One of the best times to visit Las Palmas is during the carnival period (usually in February / March). The town totally transforms; it comes alive with people, music, dance, food and drink. It's always plenty of fun. The atmosphere is warm and friendly; everyone is invited (locals and foreigners alike).

Although, thousands of foreigners flock to Las Palmas every year and many have taken up residence, it still remains authentically Spanish; it overflows with Spanish history, culture and charm and Las Palmas is still the 8th biggest city in Spain.
