With its mild climate Gran Canaria is a great winter holiday destination.
Visitors to Las Palmas should consider taking one of the new city walking routes such as that round Vegueta/Triana, the oldest part of Las Palmas, with its gastronomic option of a tapas lunch in Bienmesabe, a family run taberna, which offers tasty tapas with local Gran Canaria flavours . Bienmesabe, translates into “tastes good to me”, is a typical Canarian dessert made of honey and almonds, perfect with ice cream. Walking routes are €10 plus €10 extra for the gastronomic option. Also in Vegueta every Thursday tapa with wine/beer from €2 is on offer. The quality of the tapa is excellent as every week there is a competition between the bars and restaurants as to the best. www.grancanaria.com
