Puerto del Rosario

A new city with capital status

The Majorero capital is actually a new city, and barely two hundred years serve as a guarantee of its capital status. It was during the 17th century when this almost desert-like island was obliged to organise its market, since its exportations meant an essential part of its economy. For this reason, and following criteria of a strategic and geographic nature, it was decided that Puerto del Rosario would be the capital. Before this point in time, it was known by the name of Puerto Cabras. The charm of Puerto del Rosario lies precisely in its serenity: going along Avenida Marítima or Avenida de los Reyes de España, these modern walks will take you to a beach called Playa Blanca which makes up one of the capital's three golden sandy areas, together with Playa Chica and Puerto Lajas. Wait, there's still more: you still have to visit the open air Parque Escultórico (sculpture park), and the port which is named after the island.
