Spain welcomes you to this city of sand and stone. Las Palmas is one of Europe’s most multicultural regions. As an eclectic hub, it’s home to locals who’ve come from as far afield as Africa, China and India. Its ambience thus has as much in common with North Africa as it does with the Mediterranean. Buzzing shopping districts and sweeping beaches are dotted with city bars, steeped in a bustling, contemporary atmosphere. Las Palmas is a safe area that’s easy to navigate and pockmarked with sites as diverse as national monuments, galleries and cobbled parks. There is an Enterprise branch at the local airport, which is conveniently situated on the GC-1.
