13.10.2016: Spain got seriously wet yesterday and the tail end of that weather is arriving in the Canary Islands today. It won't affect the south of the island, but the north can expect the odd shower (although the sun is blazing this morning).
19.09.2016: If you're in Gran Canaria you may have noticed the grey to the south and east of the island yesterday. That was a wet front that never quite made it to land (it just touched Fuerteventura and Lanzarote).
There's more to Arucas old town than the great big church. Walk up the narrow cobbled streets behind the cathedral for great old Canarian houses and local street life, then head down narrow Calle Gourié to the High Street (Calle León y Castillo).
