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 Spanish city and port of Arrecife is located on the island of Lanzarote which forms part of the Canary Islands. The town lies on the island's east coast and is a city full to the brim with culture and history. Arrecife's name is derived from the Spanish for reef and is a reference to the volcanic rock formations that lie out to sea and protect the pretty harbour.
The city can trace its origins back to the 15th century where it began as a small fishing village. Over the next 300 years or so, the settlement grew and eventually became the island's capital in 1852. Today, the city is adorned with boutiques, high end shops selling designer labels and is a popular destination for shoppers. The city also has its own beach, Playa del Reducto, that has lovely golden sand and warm, calm waters to bathe in. There is also a lovely promenade that runs from Playa del Reducto to the city's second beach, Playa del Cable, which is around 2 km to the west.
From the city's port, ferries depart to the other islands in the Canaries and also to other destinations in Europe and Africa.
