León y Castillo House Museum
Situated in the house in which two distinguished Gran Canaria personalities were born, namely Fernando León y Castillo, the first marquis of Muni, and his brother, Juan, the engineer who designed the port named Puerto de la Luz and who was a faithful exponent of Mudejar architecture in the Canaries. Along the exterior of the house, arches reminiscent of the gothic style have been preserved.
