  • Cheap market, almost all being uninspired clothes on the day we visited. As far as I could tell the park is rows of trees set in concrete paving - no grass. You can walk there in 20 mins from the road...  more »
  • The Park offers some ways to relax and has very nice photo opportunities. Water games and great plants are there to see. The Casino and the beautiful hotel Catalina in which even the Spanish King is coming is right at the entrance.

  • In the 60 and 70s was gathering place for tourists and the city, was known as the Catalina Park. It has now lost all the magic that had at the time.

  • 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
