Las Palmas

This is the last thing about Canary Island.
I was staying not far from Las Palmas. It was a beautiful city, where has incredible history behind it.
Let me start with some photos.
The island was completely remote from civilization for centuries until Spaniards came.
I could see the influence of Spanish, but also some Islamic influence as well.
The following picture is a kiosk in the street.
One of landmarks in Canary Island.
Beautiful street view. Yes, it is a definitely touristic place, yet very quiet and clean.
You can see many Spanish influence through buildings. But those balconies are very Canary style. 
There are some real old buildings from 14-15 century. A lot of them are from 19th.

I love the shapes of windows.
This is a very old building. When you open your arms, that is about the width of this building.
Were people smaller back then?
