The world-famous Canary Islands are the starting point for this comprehensive and interesting Pullmantur cruise. In Gran Canaria, you will have the chance to visit a large part of one of the most outstanding natural paradises in Spain. This island, of clear volcanic origin, is home to numerous beaches, towns and small cities, all of which boast a rich variety of gastronomic and leisure activities. It is also the second most populated island in the Canary archipelago and possesses a notable historical, cultural and artistic heritage. Visitors should visit sites like the Columbus House, the Triana neighbourhood or the port of Luz, in its capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Another of the islands that you can discover while on this itinerary is Tenerife, one of the main tourist destinations in Europe and the largest of the Canary Islands, endowed with a very special natural charm and peculiar Atlantic landscapes. Upon your arrival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, its outstanding capital, you will discover a totally unique environment. Drop in on charming spots such as the Plaza de España and Plaza de la Candelaria, where you can see the monument to the Virgin, as well as the Palace of the Charter and the Church of the Conception. This religious temple was built between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and is one of the most characteristic buildings in the Canary Islands.
After visiting these islands, Lanzarote is our next stop on this Pullmantur cruise. It is the northern and easternmost territory in Canary Islands, and it is home to more than a hundred volcanoes, although most of them are inactive at present. The island's many beaches are a mix of white or dark sands, and it is an authentic haven of peace and nature surrounded by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Lanzarote has managed to maintain its traditional essence despite boasting modern infrastructure, which makes for a lovely island completely devoted to foreign tourism.
