This cosmopolitan city is located on the north-eastern part of the island and is crammed with museums, art galleries, beautiful architectures, lush parks and the famous Las Canteras beach.

This part of the island boasts delightful villages such as the picturesque Puerto Mogán, lively Puerto Rico, quiet and relaxing Playa de San Agustín and the famous Play de Inglés which is the biggest holiday complex in the whole of Spain.
