Museum of the City and the Sea

The history of the city and its relationship with the sea
The Museum of the City and the Sea is located inside Mata Castle, an historic spot that formed part of the city’s defences and is near the district of Triana, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The museum teaches visitors about more than five centuries of history with special emphasis on the city’s close and continuous relationship with the sea. A highly recommended tour that allows us to learn a little more about the past of the island’s capital, in an emblematic building that has been declared an Artistic and Historical Monument – a true jewel that the city can be proud of.
An important cultural space in the city
The facilities at Mata Castle have been fully refurbished, creating an important cultural space in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. In the past, Mata Castle formed part of the defensive walls and played an essential role during attacks by notorious pirates. This museum is a very useful space for extending the academic training received at different educational centres. In addition to free admission to allow us to learn about the history of the city from the 15th century to modern times, there are also group guided tours, which must be booked in advance.
