What to see The Vegueta district with its cobbled streets. It is home to Santa Ana cathedral and the Canary Island Museum. If you go in the morning, you can browse around the market. Pedestrian-only Triana street, with numerous Modernist buildings and lots of shops. From San Telmo Park, you can continue your stroll up along the seafront. You'll see the port in the distance and yachts in the bay. This leads to the marina. Alongside is Avenida José Mesa y López, a modern part of the city and a great place for shopping. Las Canteras beach is a short walk from here. It is an urban beach with crystal-clear waters. It has a lovely promenade where you'll always find lots of people and plenty of things to do. At one end stands the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium. At the other end, you can enjoy fabulous views of the beach and you'll be right next to Santa Catalina Park, epicentre of the famous carnival that is held in February. Trips To the north, we recommend visiting Arucas, Gáldar and Agaete. Inland, there are quiet towns such as Teror or Tejeda and trips to beauty spots like La Caldera de Bandama, the peaks of El Pozo de las Nieves and El Roque Nublo. In the south, you'll find excellent beaches such as Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés. You can also visit the seaside town of Mogán and its quaint white houses.
