Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was founded in the fifteenth century and it was a prosperous city for the next two hundred years, when the changes in sea routes and the frequent pirate attacks brought decline to the city; this lasted until the middle of the twentieth century, when flights enabled foreign tourists to visit the city. For the last fifty years, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has become one of the best summer resorts in Europe.

The city has five beaches, the most important of which is Las Canteras. Its bar, which is actually a more-than-one-hundred-year-old limestone reef, has a more-than-three-thousand-meter-long beach parallel to the shore at a distance of two hundred meters, so it is a great attraction that provides calm water. With an average annual water temperature of about twenty degrees Celsius, it has a unique ecosystem with different habitats and abundant fish. There is a great variety of restaurants, clubs, and concerts all summer long. You can also go to the Atlantic Center of Modern Art (CAAM); the Museum Canario, founded in the late nineteenth century; the Museum House Pérez Galdós; and the Museum House de Colón.
