Las Palmas Departures

No flights found. Try again!

Think Spain with a bit of Africa, China and India thrown in, plus a myriad of visitors from the ships, and you get an idea of how Las Palmas feels. It’s a thriving port full of life and entertainment at every time of the day and night. No wonder it’s so popular – a recent study at a US university declared it to have the best climate in the world.

A cultural buzz wherever you go

La Vegueta, the old quarter, is a World Heritage Site and home to many of the best bars and restaurants. The city also has a booming cultural scene, with plenty of concerts, theatres, cinemas and dance performances.

Top 5 Las Palmas architecture

  1. Santa Ana Cathedral - Take the lift up the bell tower of this 16th-century cathedral or climb the 216 steps to enjoy views of the harbour and of pretty Plaza de Santa Ana below
  2. Jardin Canario - This 27-acre botanic garden, on the side of a ravine, is home to about 500 species of plants native to the islands.
  3. Elder Museum of Science and Technology - Full of interactive exhibits on everything from computing to the dinosaurs
  4. Columbus House - This lovely building, decorated with courtyards, fountains and balconies, houses a free museum with a replica of the explorer’s quarters, some of his letters and 15th-century maps. It wasn’t in fact Columbus’s home, but the residence of the early governors of Las Palmas, where the explorer is thought to have stayed
  5. Alfredo Kraus Auditorium - This concert hall is worth a visit just so you can admire the building
