• Short Summary

    Brief look at the elegant town of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.

  • Description

    Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands.

    Several shots of street scenes and elegant hotels in Las Palmas; people sit at a pavement cafe. Cacti and brightly coloured flowers are seen growing beside the buildings. A man sweeps the steps of a church where Christopher Columbus prayed for guidance in 1492 on his way to discover the new world.

    Some pretty senoritas in traditional dress sell carnations for buttonholes in the square, while budgies sing from hanging cages. Tourists drink at a cafe in the square. Top shot of the town and coastline.
