If you are a holiday in Telde, Gran Canaria, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort.

Telde, in the east of the island and south of Las Palmas, is Gran Canaria’s second largest town. Historically, Telde was the seat of the aboriginal king, who controlled the eastern part of the island.

The most picturesque part if the barrio of San Francisco – a place of stone white houses, wooden balconies and pitched roofs around the 18th century Church of San Francisco, home to rich merchants in earlier days. The major church, though, is San Juan Bautista [St John the Baptist], surrounded by cobbled streets and a pleasant square in the north of the town.

Telde is also the birthplace of the engineer who built the harbour at Las Palmas in 1882, Juan de Leon y Castillo. His former home is now a museum, the Casa Mudeo Leon y Castillo.
