Festival de Opera: discover Las Palmas’ culture in a hire car
The famous Festival de Opera - this great opera extravaganza takes place in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria every year between March and June. In addition to renowned artists appearing in classic operas from Puccini to Verdi, the programme also includes premieres of new operatic works. If you are on Gran Canaria at this time, you should visit Teatro Pérez Galdós, preferably in a hire car. Las Palmas is also easily accessible from the south via the GC-1 or GC-60.
The venerable theatre building dates back to 1845 and was completely renovated in 2007, when the old façade was integrated into the modern building that now stands in its place. The historic auditorium shines in a new light and offers a perfect setting for classical operas. Seeing an opera staged in the Teatro Pérez Galdós is an unforgettable experience and what better way to get there than in a hire car from TUI Cars. Las Palmas is waiting for you.
Carnival in Las Palmas: hire car, horse-drawn carriages and Santa Ana Cathedral
February means carnival time in the Canary Islands and the Canarians take their carnival seriously.
For weeks Las Palmas is immersed in the tumult of the festivities in which Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife try to outdo each other in putting on the most elaborate carnival. Amid music and dance, colourful costumes and parades, the famous film festival of Las Palmas also takes place at this time.
If you want to find out which town is putting on the best carnival, pick up your hire car in Las Palmas and experience the festivities across the island. It is worth hiring a car to immerse yourself in the carnival atmosphere in small fishing communities and mountain villages.
