Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Travel Guide

The Port of Las Palmas in the Canary Islands has long been an important seaport.  Located off the west coast of Africa, the port is strategically located at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Although today it is a popular cruise port, in 1492 it was a port-of-call for Christopher Columbus on his historical voyage of discovery to America.
