Puerto de Mogan is a fishing village, also called the quiet Little Venice of Gran Canaria, located in the southwest of the Canary Island. It was so named because of the resemblance of its narrow streets, canals and bridges to those of Venice.
In this port, the charm of its white house’s stands out, built in a Mediterranean and Andalusian style, with flowers climbing up the walls. Also striking are the small canals with bridges that run through the old fishing village, connecting the streets of the village with each other.
Another attraction is an archaeological site called Zone of Cañada de los Gatos with remains of constructions of the ancient Canary Islanders (Guanches).
But perhaps the best known is the Puerto de Mogan Market, which is set up every Friday and where you can buy fresh delicacies from local farmers, handicrafts, toys, clothes, among others. It is very popular with tourists and can get a little crowded.
As is Mogan beach. An artificially created golden sandy beach, it is 190 metres long and about 35 metres wide.
