The Vegueta District

If this place could speak...

Three words are suffice to define the historic relevance of this well-known district of Las Palmas: everything started here. It was in Vegueta where Las Palmas de Gran Canaria started to rise as a city, being the capital of the island, and the best place for getting to know its real spirit. Founded in 1478, its narrow and hidden corners speak for themselves while they offer the opportunity of feeling how life was like in first person more than five centuries ago. Many of the original buildings in this historic centre are still preserved, and here you'll also find the most emblematic monuments of the capital such as the Catedral; the Plaza del Espíritu Santo; the Museo Canario; Casa de Colón, and the Casas Consistoriales. It's also one of the most lively areas in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, at any time of the day, and it's a perfect place for becoming acquainted with Canarian cuisine, thanks to its variety of gastronomical options that it has to offer.
