It took 500 years to develop the gastronomy of Gran Canaria, something necessary to bake the amalgam of products that the ocean gave away. And then to mix them with the distant influences that anchored in the ports of the island. Because Gran Canaria's gastronomy grows on its tradition as a great Atlantic port.
Travellers from a hundred different countries arrived in Gran Canaria, and brought with them the world flavours. There are many typical Canarian products, but the most outstanding are: bananas, wrinkled potatoes with mojo, gofio, sancocho or roast leg among others.
The island of Gran Canaria show with pride two of the best beaches in Europe, the beach of Las Canteras, located in the capital city of Gran Canaria, and the beach of Maspalomas, known for its famous dunes.
The beach of Maspalomas has an exceptional witness: the long silhouette of the lighthouse that has guarded the southern coast of Gran Canaria since the end of the 19th century. Its beautiful scenery and sunsets have made it an iconic image of the archipelago. Walking around it is a real privilege.
