Las Palmas – the capital

      From our Seaside Hotels you can reach Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital, in under an hour by car. Here you will also realise that the Canary Islands have a lot more to offer than sunshine and beach holidays, wonderful though these are. In addition to attractive shopping outlets you will find a wealth of cultural and entertainment facilities here. There's no doubt that a visit to Vegueta, the historical quarter, will be one of the many highlights of your holiday. Here in the old city you can visit the cathedral (built between 1497 and 1781), Casa de Colón and the Vegueta market.
