Mesa y Lopez, along with Triana, was Las Palmas’ main shopping area before the modern shopping centres opened.
Nowadays it is still home to the city’s El Corte Inglés department store as well as a great range of fashion stores.
Mesa y Lopez is a long street that runs east to west from the military base in the port almost all the way to Las Canteras beach.
The east end of the street, between the base and the Plaza de España roundabout, is the poshest area with most of the quality property. you get huge apartments with big windows in Mesa y Lopez and many buildings have interior playgrounds and underground parking.
Since Mesa y Lopez is great for shopping, convenient for the port and the road to the south and the airport, and within easy walking distance of Las Canteras beach, it’s a popular property area in Las Palmas. Prices, however, are not as high as you would expect and there are good value properties on the market.
