Another option to walk in a relaxed way is strolling into the historical heart of the city, Vegueta-Triana, along its streets and pedestrian squares, getting to know its most emblematic corners: starting our walk at Parque San Telmo and along Triana Main Street, we access into the neighbourhood of Vegueta, foundational site of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, and place where the conquest of the island began in 1478. We can go shopping and have a closer look to its very complex historical heritage while taking our time to relax having a drink and a snack at any of its many bars and terraces.
Should you wish to participate in a guided visit, the company TripGranCanaria offers a themed guided tour around the borough of Triana.
The guide will lead us to the birthplace of writer Benito Pérez Galdós where a professional actor, impersonated as the writer, will come with us along the tour, telling us anecdotes and entertaining stories of the writer and his works.
An interesting and different visit of two hours of length where we eill lear some literature, history and the importance of this writer in the history of world literature.
Tour times: Every Friday, at 18:30.
