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

El Confital is located in the northwest of the capital of Gran Canaria. It is a practically virgin enclave of those that no longer remain in the city. It is declared a Site of Scientific Interest and is located in the Protected Landscape of the Isleta. We will begin our adventure in the popular plaza "Pepe Boots Cleaner" and we will arrive at the entrance to the military zone, the end of the civil zone. During the tour, we will go back in time through old photographs to understand what this space meant for the inhabitants of the city, who lived there and why they no longer do so, the different professions that were developed ... In addition, also we will talk about its aboriginal past. Already in the present, we will talk about its nature, its volcanic landscape and I will give you some ideas to enjoy the Confital without spending a lot of money. Do not miss this place so special and so little known by tourists. Take the opportunity to get to know El Confital by the hand of an official guide born in the city, who has prepared this tour for you with so much love and love. Reservations one day in advance. If it's the same day, please wait to speak with me to confirm. According to the State's recommendations, it is necessary to wear a mask due to the situation of COVID19.
