Another visitor attraction of the Parque Doramas is the Pueblo Canario (Canarian Village), a complex of traditionally-built houses forming a typical Canarian village with gates, turrets and an atrium.
Designed in the 1930s by the brothers Néstor and Miguel Fernández de la Torre to interest tourists in native culture, this village boasts a large central square, surrounded by shops selling local handicrafts, where regular shows of Canarian music and dance take place.
The Museo Néstor, dedicated to life and works of the better known of the two brothers, is also part of this complex. Opened in 1956, this museum exhibits a multitude of works of this artist, considered one of Spain’s principal symbolist painters. They include both portraits and landscapes, highlights of which are eight murals illustrating his Poema del Mar.
Opening hours of the museum:
Tuesday – Saturday 10.00 to 20.00
Sunday 10.30 to 14.30
