Hello everyone! I am Selene and I am an official Canary Islands tourist guide. Life took me by chance to this profession and now I cannot imagine without it. I am passionate about history and languages. With me you will get to know the Vegueta neighborhood from a local and authentic point of view, since I have lived here all my life. In addition, we will take a trip back in time from the 15th century to the present day, where we will not only tell the history of the city, but also anecdotes and curiosities. I will also recommend local places to shop, drink coffee or eat. During this tour I will not only be your guide, but also your friend, so you can take the opportunity to ask me anything you need for your vacation on the island.

About the Tour

Las Palmas de GC is a city with a lot of cultural wealth, because throughout its existence it has known how to enrich itself with diversity. On this tour we will slightly approach the Triana neighborhood (S. XVI) To focus on the historic center, Vegueta (S. XV). We will travel back in time to understand the present of our city; we will tell anecdotes and curiosities; We will recommend local places to eat, drink coffee or have tapas. Also, at the end of this tour we will take you to a very special local place and give meaning to our team name, "pellagofio". We will visit together: 1. Cairasco Square and Literary Cabinet. 2. Square of the frogs. 3. Brushstrokes from the Triana neighborhood. 4. Vegueta market. 5. Foundation of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. 6. Plaza del Pilar Nuevo, Columbus museum. 7.
