Know More about this tour

This quarter is very important for the history of the island. The entire neighborhood was built back in the 15th century and exactly here is where the city of Las Palmas de Gran canaria was founded. The quarter was declared of historic and artistic interest back in the 70s.

This walk allows you to visit the starting point of the conquest of the Canary Islands, the Plaza San Antonio Abad and the old Calle de los Portuguese with the Hospital San Martin, built in the 15th century.

Lets stroll down the narrow, winding streets, where you can see the oldest houses in the history of the canary nobility. Then you continue along the Calle de los Balcones, Plaza del Pilar Nuevo, where you can visit the Santa Ana cathedral (optional) and feast your eyes upon its gothic interior.

Afterwards you continue through Santa Ana square, watching the emblematic buildings. And the final stage takes you to the Museo Colon (Columbus Museum) or Casa de los Gobernadores (optional visit), to get to know this impressive building and the history of the discoverer of the New World: Christopher Columbus, who stopped here in 3 of his trips to America.

    I am writing to express my disappointment in the above tour and to advise you of how it was handled.

    I originally booked for the 12.00 tour but received the attached email changing this to 13.00.

    My wife and I arrived at the meeting point in plenty of time for the 13.00 tour. There were about six of us who met with the guide. She then told us that the tour started at 13.15 under the tree on the opposite side of the road. Whilst we made our way there the guide went to the HOHO bus stop and proceeded to collect over 30 other people. Apparently the HOHO bus ticket included a free walking tour at 13.15.

    This then made a party of around 40 and it was impossible for the poor guide to speak audibly to us all. She was even having to do the tour in Spanish as well as the English which we had booked. It was obviously not her fault that she was required to take an unpredictable number of people from the HOHO bus. I am most disappointed that our booking at 12.00 in English which would have just been people booking and paying for the specific tour was changed to an open house and the resultant chaos.
