Las Palmas, officially named Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is a city and capital on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria in the Canary islands. The city is roughly 150 km from the African coast and is located in the north east part of Gran Canaria. The city's climate, warm, dry summers and winters that aren't too cold, make it a popular destination for tourists.
The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejon and has many things to see and do including a selection of theatre, cinema, opera, music concerts, museums and galleries to enjoy. Two of the most popular cultural events held in the city are the Canary Island Music Festival and the International Film Festival. The most important historical buildings in the city can be found in the Vegueta part of the city where some of the buildings have been standing for 500 years. These include the Chapel of San Antonio Abad, the Plaza de Santa Ana which is bordered by the Casas Consistoriales, the Casa Regental, the Obispado and Santa Ana Cathedral.
Las Palmas is the main ferry port on the island. As the island is in the middle of the archipelago, Las Palmas ferry port provides connections to several islands (Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, Tenerife) and also the south of Spain (Huelva and Cadiz).
Puerto del Rosario is the capital of the Spanish island of Fuerteventura, which is one of the Canary Islands, and the town's name means Port of the Rosary. The town is where roughly half of the island's population live and really began to grow in the middle part of the 19th century when its harbour was an important factor in wealth being brought to the area. The town lies on the island's eastern coast and the central part of the town, away from the port, is where visitors will find many shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and hotels, many of which are located around Calle Leon y Castillo, which leads to the port, and the Avenida Juan de Betancourt. Things to do and see in this part of the island include the Casa Museo de Unamuno which is an interesting and popular museum. There is also the Casa de la Cultura which is a cultural centre that hosts regular exhibitions.
Ferry services from the town's port depart to Las Palmas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Morro Jable.
