The Origins: Historical quarters and sand. Half day tour


During this tour, we will walk through the historical quarters of Vegueta and Triana including two museums: The Canarian Museum, focused on the archaeology of the first inhabitants of the island; and the Columbus Museum, where we will discover the relation between Christopher Columbus and the Canary Islands.

After enjoying a taste of our history, we will go to the north of the most famous beach in the city: La Playa de Las Canteras, where we will finish our trip with the best views of our bays in an area. Here is full of good restaurants to eat good fresh fish by the sea.

Maybe you could have a swim and savour an ice-cream before going back to your cruise ship!
