San Gregorio, Telde

San Gregorio, the tale continues

The neighbourhood of San Gregorio de Telde, in Gran Canaria, is an exciting blend of history, architecture, commerce and restaurants.

The sign on a small and inviting shop announcing the sale of both music and fishing gear in one synthesises the ability of the neighbourhood of San Gregorio in Telde, Gran Canaria, to surprise and excite. It is bustling with life, a place where a highly important heritage goes hand in hand with a great shopping area and a range of restaurant establishments, offering visitors an all-enveloping, and possibly unexpected, experience at this location to the southeast of the island.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival, Las Canteras beach

The Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival is ringing in our ears

The 2017 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival kicks off on 10th February with the slogan ‘Eternal Spring’.

The Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival will be hitting the streets between 10th February and 5th March 2017. But let’s be serious for a moment. Carnival lovers, both male and female, take little notice of dates on a calendar. The people who breathe life into this fiesta actually start thinking of next year’s disguise as soon as they wipe the make-up off their faces and take off their wigs this year. The carnival has a programme, but it is really all about a sentiment, a huge wave that everyone is invited to dive into. Fancy taking the plunge?

Any culinary route linked to the almond in Gran Canaria should include a visit to this historical business premises.
