Interaction with Guests
My family and I live just around the corner, and we welcome you at the arrival, and are delighted to assist you should any questions arise during the stay. We are also happy to give local tips, make table reservations for the restaurants etc.
On THURSDAYs from 20pm until midnight there is a lovely happening behind the Cathedral, mixture of public living room and a fiesta when around 30 trendy bars and restaurants serve delicious tapas + drink with just 1+1 euro. A splendid occasion to get to know relaxed Canary way of life, as several pedestrian streets are then packed with locals.
The picturesque VEGUETA and TRIANA neighborhoods are included in the tentative List of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and all our historic houses here are surrounded by restaurants, cafeterias, bars, art galleries, theaters and shops. Stroll along the narrow gobbled pedestrian streets where also the Columbus House, the Market hall, great museums and the Cathedral are all just minutes away on foot.
A TIP: Don´t forget to visit the closest neighbor behind our back wall: El Orden del Cachorro, the guardians of Canary culture, as they have the best folkloric bands, home made tapas etc.
The great LAS CANTERAS beach is just a 20 minute bike ride away, or 10 minutes by bus, plus taxis are delightfully inexpensive.
Excellent bus network all over the city and the island, and taxis are inexpensive too.
