20170415 - Gran Canaria - Day 9

Another nice spot on Gran Canaria is Puerto de la Nieves. Nieves means snow, in Spanish, and this port is connected to Pico de la Nieves, with the similar name. In the old days they used to collect snow on Pico de la Nieves and drag it down to Puerto de la Nieves. From there it would be shipped out to places that needed fresh water.
