GREENSCAPE 3rd ISSUE - GRAN CANARIA IN FOCUS
Travel teaches us the greatest lessons in life – when done right, we return home with understanding, compassion, and gratitude for local people and their center of life. As travelers, we get a golden ticket to absorb the essence of a place with its unique culture, language, and traditions.
We hope once you reach the last page of this magazine, you will make a conscious decision how to utilize this golden ticket. I hope you use it to dive headfirst into real Canarian hospitality, to conquer the peaks of dramatic volcanos – to feed your curiosity.
In an attempt to capture a sense of Gran Canaria’s breathtaking diversity, it is often called “The Miniature Continent”. With ancient cities, untouched beaches, exotic desert dunes, gigantic cliffs, black volcanic cones, and mystical forests – it indeed does live up to its reputation.
Every day spent on the eternal island is memorable and different – nothing is easier than getting lost in the dramatic variations of terrain ranging from the green and leafy north to the lush mountainous interior and the desert south.
For centuries, travelers have been intrigued by the strange melting pot of aromas and colors. Today, in the Canarian capital Las Palmas, a cosmopolitan mixture of cultures, traditions, and flavors is waiting for travelers who are willing to go beyond sea, sun, and sand activities.
Throughout its tumultuous history, modernity and heritage have coexisted harmoniously in Gran Canaria. The island redefines authenticity by pushing the boundaries of tradition and grounding modern-day progress in its roots.
