The district of Triana, together with Vegueta one of the oldest districts of the city, has turned into Las Palmas’ main commercial centre – especially since its main street became a pedestrianised zone – with a multitude of retail outlets, ranging from tiny old-fashioned shops to big chain stores and up-market boutiques.
In contrast to the Vegueta quarter, which – because of its narrow streets and older buildings – transports you to the Middle Ages, the Triana quarter is far more bourgeoisie as mainly local, Andalusian, English, Maltese and Danish merchant families settled in this area. This also explains why the main street which crosses the whole district displays the fashionable architectural styles of the 18th, 19th and 20th century. In spite of a stretch of modern houses at the beginning of the Calle Triana, the entire street was declared a national historic monument.
