Cruises from Las Palmas
Las Palmas, the ninth largest city of Spain, is situated on one of the smaller islands of the Canary Islands that are located just off the NW coast of mainland Africa. About twenty percent of all inhabitants of the entire group of islands live in this city. It is set in magnificent scenery of two bays and their beautiful beaches. Be sure to explore the important historical and cultural heritage found mainly in the district of Vegueta, where Christopher Columbus visited in 1492, and that has resulted in its being declared a World Heritage Site.
