Set out on a 4.5-hour, fully guided walking tour that not only covers the sun-drenched beaches and centuries-old fortress of Las Palmas, but also the local handicraft workshops and tapas-style cuisine of this Spanish city. Follow a friendly and knowledgeable guide on foot around the capital of Gran Canaria, first strolling through the seafront Parque de Santa Catalina to learn about the olden days of trading. A trio of beaches then vie for your attention, as you admire the boat-laced waters of Las Canteras, rocky coastline of La Puntilla, and surfing legacy of El Confital. You'll even cross a drawbridge over the moat surrounding the 15th-century El Castillo de la Luz. Then walk along Rosarito Street to a handicraft studio to watch artisans apply ancient methods to natural dyeing and wool weaving. If you've worked up an appetite, a Spanish tapas lunch at the Trasmallo market stall will satisfy your palate, as you savor a family-style meal featuring fried sardines, prawn salad, fish croquetas, and Canarian clams. Wash it all down with a glass of wine or ice-cold beer before making your way back to the ship.
