Carnival

The Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of the oldest festivals, with the most history and character characteristic of Spain, which is celebrated in the city of the same name (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria). More than five centuries of life have made this popular festival the most deeply rooted and one of the most multitudinous in the capital of the island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), and one of the most important in the country and the world.

Pine Festivities

The village receives with decorated balconies and light bulbs. And gives them a festive program in which shines the most rooted costumbrismo. There you can see big beasts pulling wooden wheeled carts. And dances from dozens of folkloric groups that intersect with music festivals. Arriving on September 7, at four o'clock in the afternoon, the flock of sheep that traditionally opens the pilgrimage awakens a chorus of cowbells and whistles of a shepherd. Behind, 21 large groups strive to leave their local pavilion at the top of this exhibition of devout force.

Canarian Museum

The Canarian Museum has a Documentation Centre whose origin dates back to 1879, the year of the foundation of the Scientific Society. What began as a library that served to support the archaeological or historical works developed by the members of the Museum, soon underwent a remarkable growth and diversification of documents, thus giving shape to a Newspaper Library and an Archive, which produced a significant increase in the documentation preserved both quantitatively and qualitatively, being the acquisition, exchange and especially the donation the most common forms of income.
