  • In the Park, back Luís morote, a small monument to a petite woman, surrounded by cats... Lolita Park, Lolita pen... It is the one of the afternoon. The Sun is collected in the Parker Santa Catalina. In the white meat of the Nordic tourists, the white gold of her hair. The black bronze of the Gypsies, the eternal shoe... (From my book paper napkins). Terraces of bars and restaurants, tables playing dominoes or cards... life.

  • Las Palmas' most famous square and a lovely shaded area with palm trees, outdoor cafes, the science museum and a boutique hotel. Don't miss the newspaper stands and the old men playing chess in the south west corner.
  • Nice park with several bars and resturants. You can also find a good playground here
  • Great bar on top of the Hotel "Bed y Chic" where you can gain a beautiful view
  • It's the aggregation point for the Canary people. A great place for the families, there's a good selection of bars and restaurant, and during the evening and the night there's often a live event there (concerts and such).
  • Great place to rest. Located there are the technical museum, a tourist information and some restaurants
