Overview of your Gran canaria tour:

The Canary Islands were already known by Romans and Greeks, but they never settled there. The first inhabitants were the Guanches, berbers who lived almost at the Stone Age. Then, Spaniards, French and Portuguese became interested in the islands, which conquest should be seen as an essay of the American conquest. Gran Canaria has always been a bridge between Europe and the New Continent. In fact, its Plaza Santa Ana will be the American model for their new Plaza de Armas. Come and explore streets and alleys full of histories and secrets. Walk through the old quarter of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, founded in 1478, which marked a watershed in the destiny of Hispanic monarchy and its empire. We will talk about its founding, the battles that took place against the Ancient Canaries, the pirate and corsair attacks and find out more about 
controversial personality of Christopher Columbus and also about what he did those days before going on and discovering America. The itinerary could be customize it. Write me!
