this page is dedicated to my parents

In january 2003 we visited Gran Canaria. It was a very special visit.
My parents celebrated the 55 th anniversary of their marriage.
Gran Canaria was the first place, where they went far from home about 40 years ago. And they liked to go back, but this time with their children and grandchildren.

Gran Canaria is known for its sun, sea and beach. And it is not difficult to find large sandy beaches, especially at the south coast.
Allthough the beach I ever visited was in the north, in the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

At the coast are very lovely places with a lot of flowering plants.
And, when you go inland, you can discover a rough mountaineous landscape and several nice towns and villages.

    Just back from our Gran Canaria trip. I have to agree about the spectacular views from Artenara. A bit scary getting there though, especially if you suffer with vertigo. Enjoyed your pages.

    It's good that you show some of the nice parts of Gran Canaria. Most people only see the beach, their hotel and some nightsclubs. They don't know what they miss. But if they all would tour the backcountry - maybe it wouldn't be that beautiful anymore.
