Las Palmas
Arucas The Essential
Arucas, Gran Canaria's third largest town, has the privilege of housing an architectural masterpiece, San Juan Bautista Church (20C), the size and decoration of which never fail to impress. Visitors also come to Arucas for the Montaña de Arucas, which offers a grandiose panaromic view reaching eastward as far as Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Of a completely different ilk, why not visit the Arehucas Distillery, which produces a very famous rum.
