Not too rarely, you find the Paseo de Canarias in Firgas as a cover photo of Gran Canaria / Grand Canary travel guides. Indeed, the impressive monument for all the Canary Islands is one of the key attractions of the islands and a nice contrast to the touristic wonderland in the Southern parts of the island. During my trip to Gran Canaria, I visited the Pasea de Canarias and the Paseo de Gran Canaria (which is just underneath) and put into a Pictured Story with less text and larger pictures.
Paseo de Canarias – Location & Traffic
Firgas is a small village West of Las Palmas. It is already at the Northern tip of the Gran Canaria mountains, so that the last miles to the village are rather narrow and twisty.
