Las Palmas, officially named Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is a city and capital on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria in the Canary islands. The city is roughly 150 km from the African coast and is located in the north east part of Gran Canaria. The city's climate, warm, dry summers and winters that aren't too cold, make it a popular destination for tourists.
The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejon and has many things to see and do including a selection of theatre, cinema, opera, music concerts, museums and galleries to enjoy. Two of the most popular cultural events held in the city are the Canary Island Music Festival and the International Film Festival. The most important historical buildings in the city can be found in the Vegueta part of the city where some of the buildings have been standing for 500 years. These include the Chapel of San Antonio Abad, the Plaza de Santa Ana which is bordered by the Casas Consistoriales, the Casa Regental, the Obispado and Santa Ana Cathedral.
Las Palmas is the main ferry port on the island. As the island is in the middle of the archipelago, Las Palmas ferry port provides connections to several islands (Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, Tenerife) and also the south of Spain (Huelva and Cadiz).
The city and port of Cadiz is located in the Andalusia region of southern Spain. The city's coastline forms part of the Costa de la Luz (the Coast of Light) and has many popular sandy beaches some of which are in an urban environment and some of more remote and therefore, unspoilt. There are three festivals held in the city which are popular with tourists. There is the Carnival of Cadiz, the horse racing events on the beach at Sanlucar de Barrameda and the Horse Fair in Jerez de la Frontera. The city is also well known for its delicious food and specifically for its "pescaito frito" (fried platters of assorted fish) and for its shellfish which are best accompanied by wines from the region.
The city's old town is characterised by narrow streets and is one of the most densely populated areas in Europe and has a number of squares that are popular with tourists. These are Plaza de Espana, Plaza de San Juan de Dios, Plaza de Candelaria and Plaza de Mina.
