Dark or black tourism is trendy. Even though it is commonly associated with violent death or tragedies which took place in certain places, this tour is focused on history. Join this dark tour to learn everything about the presence of the dictator Francisco Franco in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria during July 1936.
Franco declared war from the Military Headquarters of Las Palmas and the previous day he slept at a hotel in the city. Discover the details on this event and also about El Corredera, a man charged with failed attempt to kill the dictator and the last person to be executed under Francisco Franco´s dictatorship in the Canary Islands. Cairasco Square, the old Military Headquarters, Barranco Seco Prison or San Martín Hospital are some of the dark sights you will visit with this tour.
