Each region of Gran Canaria is steeped in history owing to the several civilizations that flourished here and its long history of colonial domination. Agüimes has been one of the major urban centers in the island over the centuries, imparting it a rich historical heritage. Tourists can explore different facets of this legacy at the Agüimes History Museum. Located in a beautiful building known as the Palacio Episcopal, it traces the history of the town over the past five centuries. Art, sculpture, artifacts—all find a place under its roof. Some pieces have been donated by local artistes and personal collectors. The museum includes some permanent exhibits pertaining to local life, and a few contemporary exhibitions as well.
