Close to the most emblematic museums
Museo Canario: created in 1879 in response to a growing interest in “Canarian antiquities” among the city’s bourgeoisie. The museum houses a permanent monographic exhibition on Gran Canaria’s aboriginal people.
Casa de Colón: narrates the journeys of Christopher Columbus, his passage through the Canary Islands, and the history of the Canaries as it relates to the discovery of America.
Casa Museo Pérez Galdós: a museum in the house where Benito Pérez Galdós, one of the greatest Spanish authors of all time, was born and lived until the age of 19.
Museo Castillo de Mata: a museum dedicated to “the city and the sea,” housed in one of the fortresses that protected Las Palmas from enemy attacks for centuries. It also is the only remaining fragment of the city’s ancient wall, the “Muro del Real,” which you can spot from Taoyo Suites.
Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno: the leading contemporary art museum in the Canary Islands, with an intense calendar of activities related to contemporary creation.
