Vegueta

While in Las Palmas, I spent a few hours walking around Vegueta, the oldest part of town. Stopped at Plaza Santa Ana to do some sketches from the square in front of the cathedral, then strolled around for a bit, enjoying the calm narrow streets, the nice atmosphere and the warm sun.

Then I went to look for the tiny Plaza de Espiritu Santo after a tip from local urban sketcher Ale. It turned out to be a beautiful little oasis, squeezed in between two streets. I sat there drawing for a while, listening to some kids playing and the water splashing in the fountain. And when I left, I discovered that I was right back at the cathedral again. Walking in circles…
