Vacation in Las Palmas2 / Vacaciones en Las Palmas2 / Vacances à Las Palmas2 / Férias em Las Palmas2

In English:

Old town.

Visitando Vegueta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas

I love old towns. Visiting them is like making travel in time. Vegeta, the old town in Las Palmas is not exception. It offers visitors to find interesting items to their taste. In this post, I show some general photos from Vegeta, old town of Las Palmas, Columbus house (Casa de Colón), Cathedral of Santa Ana, Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana in front of the Cathedral, dog sculptures in front of the Cathedral and folk music ensemble in front of the Cathedral.

Columbus house, opened 1951, offers awesome artefacts, such as scale models Columbus’s three ships (Santa Maria, La Niña and Pinta), maps and the second floor is dedicated to art, handwriting sample and route maps. Cathedral of Santa Ana about 500 years old is beautiful building. Dog sculptures in front of Cathedral of Santa Ana, but who sculpted them- mystery, but who scupled them – mystery. There has been discussion about the name of Canary Island. Some thinks that the name come canaries and others that the name comes from dogs. Latin word for dog is canis and nowadays canine is general term for a dog. We stopped for long time to listen folk music ensemble in front of the Cathedral of Santa Ana. Their song was beautiful. The young Lady was clear-voiced and other Ladies in colorful clothes wearing hats, which resembled those Indian hats that, I have seen in Quito, Ecuador.

En español:

Casco antiguo.

Visitando Vegueta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas

Amo las ciudades viejas. En visitarlos es como viajar a tiempo. Vegeta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas no es una excepción. Ofrece a los visitantes encontrar artículos interesantes por su gusto. En este post, vos muestro algunas fotos generales de Vegeta, el casco antiguo de Las Palmas, la casa de Colón, la Catedral de Santa Ana, la Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana frente a la Catedral, las esculturas de perros frente a la Catedral y conjunto de música folclórica frente a la Catedral.

La casa Columbus, inaugurada en 1951, ofrece artefactos impresionantes, como maquetas de los tres barcos de Columbus (Santa María, La Niña y Pinta), mapas y el segundo piso está dedicado a muestras de arte, muestras de escritura y mapas de rutas. La Catedral de Santa Ana de aproximadamente 500 años es un hermoso edificio. Esculturas de perros en frente de la Catedral de Santa Ana, pero ¿quién las han esculpidas? – misterio. Se ha discutido sobre el nombre de Canarias. Algunos piensan que el nombre viene de los canarios y otros que el nombre proviene de los perros. La palabra latina para perro es canis y hoy en día el término canino es general para un perro. Nos detuvimos por mucho tiempo para escuchar un conjunto de música folclórica frente a la Catedral de Santa Ana. Su canción fue hermosa. La jovencita tenia la voz clara y otras damas con ropas coloridas con sombreros, que parecían a los sombreros indios que, he visto en Quito, Ecuador.

En francais:

Vieille ville.

Visitant la vieille ville Vegeta à Las Palmas

J’aime les vieilles villes. En leur rendant visite, ç’est comme faire un voyage dans le temps. Végéta, la vieille ville de Las Palmas n’est pas une exception. Elle offre aux visiteurs de trouver des choses intéressantes à leur goût. Dans ce post, je vous montre quelques vues générales de Vegeta, la vieille ville de Las Palmas, la maison de Colomb (Casa de Colón), la cathédrale de Santa Ana, la Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana en face de la cathédrale, des sculptures de chiens devant la cathédrale et l’ensemble de musique folklorique devant la cathédrale.

La maison Columbus, ouverte en 1951, propose des objets impressionnants, tels que des maquettes de bateaux de Christophe Colomb (Santa Maria, La Niña et Pinta), l’écriture manuscrite de Colomb et des cartes océaniques et le deuxième étage est dédié à l’art. La cathédrale de Santa Ana,qui est environ 500 ans, est un bel immeuble. Les sculptures de chiens devant la cathédrale de Santa Ana, mais par qui été sculptés – mystère. On a beaucoup parlé sur le nom de l’île Canaries. Les uns pensent que le nom vient des canaris et les autres que le nom vient des chiens. Le mot latin pour chien est canis et de nos jours canine est un terme général pour un chien. Nous nous sommes arrêtés longtemps pour écouter l’ensemble de la musique folklorique devant la cathédrale de Santa Ana. Leur musique était belle. La jeune fille avait une voix claire et d’autres femmes portant de vêtements colorés et des chapeaux qui ressemblaient à ces chapeaux indiens que j’ai vus à Quito, en Équateur.

Em Português:

Cidade antiga.

Visitando a cidade velha Vegeta em Las Palmas

Eu adoro as cidades antigas. Visitar-lhes é como fazer viagens no tempo. Vegeta, a cidade velha em Las Palmas não é exceção. Ele oferece aos visitantes itens interessantes de encontrar ao seu gosto. Nesta mensagem, eu vão mostrar-lhe algumas fotos gerais de Vegeta, a cidade velha de Las Palmas, a casa de Colombo (Casa de Colón), a Catedral de Santa Ana, Plaza Mayor de Santa Ana em frente à Catedral, esculturas de cães, em frente à Catedral e finalmente um conjunto de música folclórica.

A casa de Colombo, inaugurada em 1951, oferece incríveis artefatos, como modelos de escala dos três navios de Colombo (Santa Maria, La Niña e Pinta) manuscritos e mapas de rotas de Cristóvão Colombo. O segundo andar é dedicado à arte. A Catedral de Santa Ana cerca de 500 anos de idade é um belo edifício. Esculturas de cães, ninguém sabe quem os fez em frente à Catedral de Santa Ana.Houve discussões sobre o nome da ilha das Canárias. Alguns pensam que o nome vem canários e outros que o nome vem de cães. A palavra latina para cachorro é canis e hoje canino é termo geral para um cachorro. Paramos por muito tempo para ouvir um conjunto de música folclórica em frente à Catedral de Santa Ana. Linda era a sua música. A menina teve com voz clara e outras senhoras em roupas coloridas estão usando chapéus, pareciam aqueles chapéus indianos que, eu vi em Quito, Equador.

      I am glad that You loved my post. Columbus’s handwriting is incredible and delightful. I could never write so beautifully. My handwriting is bad, because I started using Computer already in 1970! The musical instrument was made from bones! We both stared it carefully. Thank You.

  6. Thank you for taking us with you to this old town. The Christopher Columbu house is fascinating — I would love to see it in person. The cathedral is beautiful. It’s interesting that the female entertainers are all wearing hats — we don’t see that very often.

  7. I’ve always wondered how smaller European cities find the money to do their beautiful architectural restoration and ongoing preservation. I doubt the national Spanish govn’t has an endless budget.
    Ah yes, Christopher Columbus the colonizer…in all dreadful honesty there’s some horrible past on the North American/South American side, when the Spanish explorers came over and just took over, plundered for gold, ie.

    Comment by Jean — November 22, 2017 @ 14:42 | Reply

    • Hello Jean.

      Thank You. I know the history of Columbus. You are right, but we have to remember, that much later there were slaves and serfs. Concerning about churches, in Finnish churches we do not have much gold, as a matter of fact, probably none, because our parishes are poor. This I can say, because I have shot about 440 photos from churches in Finland, but mainly on countryside where most beautiful old wooden churches exist. Here is good example, which is in Unesco World Heritage list also:

      Old church at Petajavesi.

      Have a good day.

Next week, November 6, 2017, Finland celebrate it 100 years independence. Then look at YLE TV 1, because there is program from Presidents’ Feast from his residence. This is tradition and this year it is important. Every year number of visitor are about 1800. Among them, there will be sure the Ambassador of United States for example. The program starts at 19.

          Have a good weekend.

  22. This is the first time I’ve visited your blog. It is as you say – old towns and cities take you back in time. And so do those old maps of Columbus’s expedition to the Americas. That arrow pointing from Gran Canaria and La Gomera out towards nothingness. That’s how those seamen must have felt as they headed out to sea that day in september 1492. All this comes very much alive in those pictures. And I love that folk music ensemble. I would have liked to hear them.
