Parque de San Telmo, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

3.6
#6 of 10 in Parks in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Located at the end of the one of Gran Canaria’s busiest streets, Parque de San Telmo provides a relaxing and shaded refuge from the bustle of the surrounding city. The park itself abuts a section of the old city wall, and contains a baroque chapel from the late sixteenth century. Relax on one of the park’s many benches under the shade of large palm trees, or grab a drink from one of the surrounding cafes and food stands. Be sure to pay a visit to the Modernist-style kiosk located on the edge of the park, which is an example of unusual architecture in addition to serving refreshments. Children can play and exercise on the playground or central green areas. Live music is often played in the evenings at the square’s central gazebo. The area makes a convenient post-arrival rest area as it is located next to the city’s central bus station. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria fast, fun, and easy.

  • Excellent spot to relax. Couple of kiosks selling drinks and snacks. Right by the bus stataion and the Calle Triana shopping street  more »
  • A sentence with the beautiful and nice that is the establishment in the parque San Telmo. We were waiting, we met 30 minutes, but we left elsewhere, we saw inside waiters, drinking and the tables butt... a shame.

  • Very nice church and a few old buildings have not been able to find a lot of historical things if more time probably would be able to find them but cost a lot of Euros to travel best to have a car
  • It's a pretty cool place really. Benches, shades, nice trees. Worth a rest of a few minutes here and take some photos.
  • The park is provided with an area for dogs, a park wherre children can play, a small church, there is even a nice bar!
  • It is nice place for kids and adults
  • Very nice place for a break after walking through Vegueta and Triana.
