Address: Domingo J. Navarro 1 Las Palmas
An oasis of palm trees and orange trees embedded between gorges draw a landscape similar to that of New Mexico or Arizona, and if you want to see a “sea of clouds”, climb the Roque Nublo or Bentayga, two basaltic monoliths at 1,813 meters of altitude, that Miguel de Unamuno described as a "petrified storm."
From its airport there are flights to 138 destinations in Spain, Europe and Africa, although it can also be reached by boat. Its ports are connected with 137 destinations. It has more than 550 hotels and 40,000 hotel beds, as well as three congress centers: the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium (1,656 pax), the Infecar Congress Palace (800 pax) and the Expomeloneras (796 pax).
The island has been declared a World Biosphere Reserve and Starlight destination, for the high quality of its skies for stargazing. Las Palmas Carnival in Gran Canaria reminds of Rio de Janeiro and every year floods the streets of the city with joy and color.
The dunes, a small portion of desert anchored by the sea, is a sublime scenario. Can an event be made there? It will depend on the wind ... but the light of its nineteenth-century lighthouse will shine again after several years closed, and will open some of its facilities as an ethnographic center. Spread over two structures, the stone masonry tower that outlines the 60 meters of its silhouette and the lighthouse keeper's house, designed in the purest Canarian style based on a rectangular structure that houses the traditional Canarian courtyard inside.
