Perhaps it was because of the clouds and a few raindrops, but the capital of Gran Canaria, Las Palmas, could not appeal to us. Yet there are some shopping centres, a playa in the middle of the city and some museums.
As an example we give this picture of a church near the ' Castillo de la Luz '. Not really beautiful ... The Castillo de la Luz itself cannot be visited, hopefully because of restoration work.
