A large part of the historic and cultural wealth of Gran Canaria is represented in the island´s museums, where a large part of the island´s heritage is preserved, researched and exhibited. The broad range of subject matters that are covered by the museums include everything from the native past of the island right up its most recent contemporary history. You can also find houses that are kept in remembrance of the most illustrious sons of the island who have gained renown in various social and cultural disciplines as well as those houses where the popular customs and traditions of the island are preserved. Most of these places are well worth a visit simply by reason of the buildings themselves. These buildings are of artistic and historic importance and exemplify the varied and rich urban and rural architecture that sprung up here in the Canaries.
