Parque de San Telmo, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

(3.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • At the end of the Calle Triana, you will find this small park or families stop a moment to enjoy the playgrounds (there is a huge boats great for children to play). Incidentally the station of guaguas (bus station) is located just behind the place and her you can reach the main cities of the island.

  • Beautiful old church on the corner of the square (16 century?) Very special art nouveau kiosk, just beautiful. Sit on the terrace before, with even a music Chapel. Square is maybe not so special but traditionally.

  • Fringed by many tall trees, park similar to created this beautiful shady place is located at the end of the pedestrian zone. Worth seeing an Oriental Art Nouveau are the Kiosko Modernista Pavilion with café and the small chapel of the fishermen of Ermita de San Telmo, which you should visit because of gold-decorated interior design.

  • Very nice place for a break after walking through Vegueta and Triana.
  • The Park is good but need you more conditioning.
