Welcome to Telde
In the South East of Gran Canaria you will find the historical town of Telde. Roughly just eight miles from the South of Las Palmas - Gran Canaria's Capital. Telde was one of the two pre-Hispanic kingdoms, Galdar being the other. The town is absolutely beautiful and rich in history, with cobbled streets and the main hub of Telde happening around the town square - Plaza de San Juan this is also the core of the town's history, the square is surrounded by green and white colonial-style houses, shaded by huge tree's and dominated by the great Basilica de San Juan Bautista - a church. There is also many streets with historical references along them, as this is a coastal town there is also a lovely harbour there, if you are not staying in Telde I would highly recommend a visit, as it is a very interesting and a exquisite town in Gran Canaria.

Some of these properties can be set in privately owned complexes, where locals live! Most come with communal swimming pools too, and these are normally quieter due to the fact it isn't full of holiday makers and is more residencial.
