About This City

Maspalomas History: Its name may derive from that of Rodrigo Mas de Palomar, a settler and soldier from Majorca, or from Francisco Palomar, a Genovese friend of Alonso Fernandez de Lugo who purchased 87 Guanche slaves from Güímar and settled in the area. Maspalomas being basically a built for tourism resort, there is very little history attached to the area of Maspalomas, and very little of historic interest in its environs, you could however take a trip the Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse, which marks the southermost tip of Gran Canaria and was first conceived in 1861, though not built until a little later (1884-1889), it was designed by Juan de León y Castillo and reaches a height of about 65 metres.

The place is famous for tourism, its hotels, beaches, dunes, apartments, and other facilities including restaurants, bars, taverns, shopping centres, souvenirs, and businesses.

Maspalomas Tourist Attractions: Besides the traditional lazing on the beach sunbathing, there are a good choice of other things to do in Maspalomas and the surrounding areas, amongst those that are within easy driving distance are the exotic Palmitos Park, a subtropical oasis around 10km north of Maspalomas, the Holiday World amusement park, the Aquasur Water Park, the largest on the island, Sioux City, a wild west park, and the Mundo Aborigen, a theme park tracing the early history of the Canary Islands.
