The Spanish city of Santa Cruz de la Palma is located on the east coast of the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands. It is the island's second largest city, after Los Llanos de Aridane, but it is the island's capital. The city was founded by 1493 by Alonso Fernandez de Lugo and was located next to a river that was situated by a cave named Tedote (now Cueva de Carla) to the north of the city. The city's original name was called Villa del Apuron and its port connected routes to the Americas, from which goods from the island were exported. The city is characterised by its cobbled streets, timber balconies and ancient buildings and is just a short stroll from the holiday resort of Los Cancajos. For passengers disembarking at the city's port, the town centre is just across the road from the harbour's entrance.
Santa Cruz de la Palma has the only major port in the island, serving ferry routes to Cádiz in Spain, as well as to Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. The main ferry operators in the port are Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen Express. Many cruise line firms also operate from the port.
The Spanish city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the capital of the island of Gran Canaria, in the Canary Islands. The city lies in the north eastern part of the island and sits across two bays and a number of lovely beaches. The city was founded in 1478 and has an important cultural and historical heritage which seems to be centred in the district of Vegueta which is the oldest part of the city and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990. The city is also home to one of the most important ports, Puerto de la Luz, in Europe which helps to give the city a lovely cosmopolitan feel. There are many things to see and do in the city but a short distance away from the city's centre visitors will find lovely beaches and crystal clear waters.
From the city's port ferry services provide connections to several islands (Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, Tenerife) and also the south of Spain (Huelva and Cadiz).
