Insular, seat of the Cabildo (Island Governing Body) of Gran Canaria,
which was achieved in 1912 is on Bravo Murillo Street. This
building was designed by Miguel Martín Fernández de la Torre in
accordance with the retionalist style of architecture. Perpendicular
to Bravo Murillo Street is Tomás Morales Street which runs as far as
the Parque Doramas (Doramas Park), and is the city's focal point in
terms of educational institutions: Secondary Schools, University
Departments, important bookshops and so forth. Also in this street
is the Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square), which is more
commonly known as Plaza del Obelisco, which features a obelisk to
commemorate Spain's new constitution.
The Island is divided in 21
municipalities which all, little by little will be described as
detailed as possible on these pages, and if anyone has some interesting
information's you are welcome to e-mail me.
