Las Palmas

The western coast of the island from Las Palmas

The Las Palmas landscape is a mix of black (for the volcanic island), green, blue and gray. The island capital has grown from the Spanish conquest in a compact form until the XXth century, when from the 1960s tourism changed completely the face of the islands. The steep slopes in most of the territory contribute to a high building density.
