From now on, Las Palmas offers its visitors a new tourist attraction that will allow them to learn a bit more about the traditions and history of the city.

The Department of Tourism and Orden del Cachorro Canario have established an agreement so that, from Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., tourists in the capital of Gran Canaria can visit, for free, the headquarters of this organisation — a typical house in the historic centre, in Plaza de Santo Domingo, where they can better understand the traditional culture and the identity of the Canarian people.

This year, Orden del Cachorro Canario, founded in 1991, celebrates its 25th anniversary. This association, present in almost all the Canary Islands and with five houses in Cuba, has a great value for the Canarian tradition in Vegueta, keeping an intense activity, with lectures, folk music classes and exhibitions. Thus, visitors may see the inside of this tourist attraction, decorated in the most typical Canarian style, taste the Canarian cuisine and attend or participate in several activities and workshops, such as guitar lessons, Canarian dances or night musical performances.
