Parque Santa Catalina

Less park and more square, for those travelling on cruise ships, Parque Santa Catalina is the first place they'll see after arriving to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Take your pick from the cafés which offer more outdoor seating than indoor.


Locals start, and indeed end, their day with a coffee. Forget your lattes, GC natives keep things short with a cortado. For a more milky version, ask for a cortado largo. Or even a relaxing café con leche. Parque Santa Catalina, Triana's Plaza Cairasco, and Vegueta's Plaza Santa Ana are popular coffee-break destinations.
