This is the first fortress raised in Gran Canaria to defend the inhabitants from pirate attacks. The Fortaleza de la Luz (Fortress of Light), as it was first called, was built between 1550 and 1552, and was, during many years, the only defense the city had against historic pirates such as Sir Francis Drake, the Dutch Van der Does (who took the fortress and destroyed it in 1599, leaving it quite damaged) and Morgan. The layout is simple, with two cylindrical watchtowers with added battlements. It is an important symbol for the residents of La Isleta neighborhood. Although the fortress can not be visited at the moment, its future as a naval museum is being looked into. For more information, you can call the Town Hall, whose number is listed above.
Widely considered one of the best beaches in the area, this four kilometer stretch of sand is protected from the Atlantic's fury by an attractive rock and sandstone breakwater. It is the ideal place to watch the sun set and one of the few public open spaces in the vicinity. It has been awarded the EU "Blue Flag" category in recognition of its excellent facilities and services, including daily cleaning, lifeguards, water sports zones, bars, restaurants and night clubs. Come at night as well as during the day for a truly magical atmosphere.

The "ugly duckling" of beaches in the city of Las Palmas is conversely an important leisure area for thousands of people, as it offers the best conditions for bathing, fishing and watersports every day. As well as the imposing La Luz Port, this little beach with golden sand houses the fabulous Real Club Náutico de Gran Canaria, the authentic breeding ground of Olympic yachtsmen. At this beach, visitors can take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean without having to leave the city.
This multiplex is situated right in the centre of Las Palmas, some 200m from Plaza España, the most important square in the city. Although 14 years old, the cinema has modern equipment. There are 6 screens and a sweets and drinks kiosk. Unfortunately, there are no special access points for handicapped people nor sound systems for the deaf. A wide range of films on general release are shown.
