    Where to eat in Gran Canaria

    Wondering where is best to eat in Gran Canaria? You can’t miss either of these two places during your stay in one of the holiday homes in Gran Canaria that we have found: Casa Brito and Cho Zacarías which are two restaurants that will take you to foodie heaven! The first is a meat grill that combines meats with typical dishes from the area, and is located in Arucas. The second is located in the capital city of Las Palmas and is famous for its rice soup. Make sure you visit Maspalomas Lighthouse, which is one of the iconic views par excellence of Gran Canaria. This lighthouse has been in full working order for over a century, and is well worth the visit. There are many different cultural events which are organised throughout the year, but don’t hesitate to attend if it coincides with your trip! You have to visit Arucas which is the mecca for rum. For a long time, the success of its rum exports was the reason for the town’s prosperity and allowed for the construction of impressive monuments and streets in which landlords showed off their purchasing power. It was considered to be an affluent place for this very reason. Did you know that Gran Canaria is also known as ‘Continente en miniatura’ (continent in miniature) due to the variety of landscapes it has. Las Palmas, which is the capital of Gran Canaria, is also considered to be the Spanish city with the cleanest air as its inhabitants make good use of public transport and bicycles to move around the city.
