The annual event is a great place to see high quality traditional Canarian crafts including basket weaving, Canarian knives, leatherwork and pottery.

The Feria Artesanía Faro de Maspalomas is on between August 7 and 16 between 17.00 and 23.00. It's held right next to the Faro lighthouse at the east end of the Meloneras boulevard. 

The event is co-ordinated by FEDAC: The Canarian Craft Association that was founded in 1990 to preserve Canarian traditions and encourage traditional crafts. It has several shops in Gran Canaria selling high-quality local crafts, including one in the Playa del Inglés tourism office right next to the dinosaur sign at the Yumbo Centre.

    Everyone who visits Puerto Rico knows the giant Puerto Rico shopping centre and the Europa Centre high up on west hill. However, there's a third Puerto Rico centre and it's home to a cluster of good restaurants.
