Triana Las Palmas is a-must for anyone coming to Las Palmas.
It's the oldest commercial street in Las Palmas. This pebbled street
is packed with boutique shops and colonial style bourgeois houses with
very high ceilings.
Most of these were built by affluent merchants in the 1800's.
The main street or Calle Mayor starts where Gran Canaria's main underground bus station is. This is the north end of Triana. Here you'll find San Telmo Park which is a nice place to just stroll around and relax.
During the evenings Tiana becomes very lively was it's the place to go when people finish work. There are lots of bars and cafés towards the end of the street - heading towards Vegueta.
On Thursdays they also have a 1 euro Beer-&-Tapa special! This is definitely the time to come if you want to mingle with locals.
At the end of Triana is the famous Pérez Galdós Theatre which was built in the XIX century. You can join in one of their 40 minute guided tours from Mon-Sun (10:15 - 12:45).
Pérez Galdós was a famous Spanish writer. You can learn all about him and his work in the Pérez Galdós House Museum also in Triana. In front of it there's a lovely tiny square - Plazoleta de Cairasco.
Oh, and one last thing
If you have a sweet tooth as I do - you cannot leave without stopping by Guirlache.
They make the best ice-creams and chocolate cakes in the world!
Once you've seen Triana it's time to go back-in-time and visit the old quarter of Vegueta.
