Doramas Park – Gran Canaria

The Doramas Park it’s in the residential neighborhood Garden City, a true oasis of peace within the city of The Gran Canarian palms.

Doramas Park Las Palmas

This park is the main attraction of the neighborhood. Populated by numerous statues, waterfalls, a public pool and full of flowers and plants native to the island. Among the sculptures we must highlight the monument that represents the aborigines that fall down a cliff, in the attempt to escape the capture and Spanish domination. Precisely, the name of the park honors Doramas, the guanche that led the resistance in the 15th century.

Park of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Included within the park we find the Santa Catalina Hotel, built in 1890, and redesigned in the mid-twentieth century by Néstor Martín Fernández de la Torre. We recommend that you enter the bar and enjoy the wonderful views it has.

Nestor Museum of Las Palmas

Also inside the park, you can visit the Canary Village. A neighborhood of typical Canarian houses, designed by Néstor Martín Fernández de la Torre, to disseminate the Canarian traditions, and which has a central square where concerts are held, surrounded by traditional handicraft shops. The Nestor Museum, dedicated to the artist, is a monograph of his life and is also in the park.
