Welcome to Puerto del Rosario
Puerto del Rosario, the island’s capital, is home to more than half the island’s population. It’s a relatively modern little port town that only really took off in the 19th century. If you fly to the island, or use the buses, you may find yourself passing through. It can appear as a confusing city with sprawling suburbs, but head to the old town behind the promenade to find the majority of the shops, bars and restaurants.
Long-overlooked, the capital is making efforts to attract a few tourists, with sculptures and street art dotted around. There are no major attractions here, but it's still worth a stroll and a lunch stop.
