Vegueta Walking Tour

Begin your guided tour of Vegueta from Plaza Hurtado de Mendoza, popularly known as “plaza de las ranas” (The Frogs Square) because of the sculptures that decorate the fountain in its center.

Advance into the maze of little streets that make up the city’s historic center while you admire the buildings of Spanish colonial architecture. Your guide will reveal how everyday life was for the inhabitants of Las Palmas in the fifteenth century, when the city was founded.

Continue the tour of the capital of Gran Canaria by visiting Plaza de Santa Ana. The space is home to eight sculptures of dogs that represent the eight islands of the Canary Islands (including La Graciosa). The archipelago is also known as “tierra de los canes” (land of the canines) due to the enormous number of dogs in each island. These animals are so important that there are even four different breeds from the Canary Islands.  

Next, marvel at the Las Palmas Cathedral, also located in Plaza de Santa Ana, one of the most striking temples of the city. Designed in a Gothic architectural style, it was the only cathedral in the Canary Islands until 1819.

The last stop of the tour is the Casa-Museo de Cristóbal Colón. Go over the history of this emblematic building, a former governmental residence visited by the Admiral of Castile in 1492 during his first trip to the New World.
