Gran Canaria is the round island, the one with the ever warm climate. It is the island of contrasts and golden sandy beaches. The island with its doors open wide, with a melting pot of cultures where local traditions are kept alive. It is a corner of the South Atlantic where you can find everything you could ever want to relax, have fun and enjoy great holidays…
As with the rest of the Archipielago, it is of volcanic origin and is not without its mythical past; round in shape with a peninsula-like appendage sticking out at its northern tip. With a total surface area of 1560 sq kilometers, 43 percent of its territory is protected, while its nearly 60 kilometers of coastline are blessed with golden, sandy beaches. It has a cone-shaped mountain top at its highest point, namely el Pico del Pozo de las Nieves (1949 metros), which casts an eye over the Roque Nublo, a natural and emblematic monument for all Grancanarians, located right in the middle of the island, standing some 1813 metres above sea level.
The history of Gran Canaria is not locked away, or hidden from view. It is on display in an extensive network of museums where the thousand ingredients that made the island a conclave of different cultures are all mixed together. Pre-hispanic mummies, ancient ships and contemporary art. Great writers, painters and musicians. Architecture, indigenous ceramics, sculpture and an ocean of history.
