    Parking Tips

    Parking spaces in Las Palmas are fairly easily accessible. Free parking is possible near Alfredo Kraus Auditorium concert hall, close to the southern part of Las Canteras Beach. If you park your car hire in one of the big car parks in the Triana area, the main museums, shops and bodega restaurants will be within easy reach. The car park nearest to the museums and Plaza de Santa Ann is located between Av.Alcalde Diaz Saavedra Navarro and Canarias. However, due to its superb location, it will often be full. Just a little further there is a parking area on Av. Rafael Cabrera or at Parque San Telmo.
