Pueblo Canario is a recreation of typical Canarian village and it is right in the centre of Las Palmas.
It is actually located inside Parque Doramas in a beautiful residential area known as Ciudad Jardin or in "Gran Canaria Gardens City".
There are a number of typical Canarian houses with wooden balconies here, a chapel which dates back to the 16th century - Ermita de Santa Catalina, Nestor art museum, and a lovely open terrace area which is the 'town square'.
The idea of having this typical Canarian village recreation was brought up and designed by Nestor and Miguel Martín-Fernández de la Torre in the 1930's. Their aim was to show visitors our local customs and culture.
We recommend you really try to come on a Sunday morning at around 11:30 as they have free lively typical Canarian folklore performance with ances and music.
If you can't make it on the Sunday
they have another performance on Thursdays evenings at 5pm.
There's also a restaurant here called "Bodegon del Pueblo Canario" where you can have a few drinks or something to eat.
We had some amazing "papas arrugadas" and "mojo"...
If you haven't had them before they are like small jacket potatoes with a tantalizing spicy source. You cannot go wrong with them!
Around the 'town square' are a number of artisan shops where you can buy some souvenirs.
Pueblo Canario is on the west-side of Parque Doramas. And the park itself is right behind the yacht club of La Avenida Maritima. It's just in front of the famous swimming pool centre of Monopol on Calle Leon y Castillo.
It's open from Tuesdays to Saturday from 10:00 to 20:00 and until 14:30 on Sundays and there are no entrance fees.
