Canary Islands Things to Do: 239 reviews and 214 photos


Don't miss the all the culture on offer!
In the Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno you can see an important collection of contemporary art.

La Casa de Colón, the 'House of Columbus', reminds us that the ships of Christopher Columbus made a halt here on their journey to America.

The Museo Canario, the 'Canarian Museum', shows the most complete exposition you may find about the islands' original inhabitants, the Guanches.

The Pueblo Canario, located in the beautiful gardens of Doramas Park, was created by canarian artist Néstor de la Torre and represents the islands' typical architecture. Each Thursday and Sunday take place colorful folkloristical performances.

More sights to be visited are the Museum of Arts, the Museum Pérez Galdós in the house where this writer was living, and the Nestor-Museum, close to the Pueblo Español and created by the artist himself.

8 kilometers out of Las Palmas there is the Jardín Canario, the 'Canarian Garden'. It shows the incredible variety of plants at the islands, with no fewer than 500 species existing exclusively here.
