A unique and particular area

Maspalomas may have its origin in the name of a Mallorcan conquistador, Rodrigo Mas de Palomar, who obtained land in the area after the conquest of the island at the end of the 15th century.

 

However, there's no documentary evidence that this person existed, and some linguists believe that the toponym is of Guanche origin, the language of the island's ancient inhabitants.

The Canary Islands desert

In addition, the Maspalomas area is characterised by its arid and sublime landscape, made up of dunes, a lagoon and a beach more than two kilometres long. These natural spaces are home to a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, and have been declared protected areas.

 

The Maspalomas lighthouse, built in 1890, is one of the most emblematic symbols of the town. On the other hand, Maspalomas became a tourist destination from the 1960s onwards, when the construction of hotels, shopping centres and golf courses began.

 

Since then, it has been the main tourist centre of the island, attracting millions of visitors every year. Maspalomas offers a wide range of leisure, culture and sporting activities, and is famous for its warm and sunny climate all year round.
