The procedure for requesting permission to record depends on the municipality in which you wish to film. Some allow telematic requests with a digital certificate, while others need a personal visit for the purpose. Below are some of the municipalities most requested in recent years with some details of each.
Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Principal city and capital of the island, it is situated in the northeastern quadrant, at 18 kilometres or 20 minutes by motorway from the International Airport of Gran Canaria. In its 100,55 kms of terrain is found El Puerto de La Luz y de Las Palmas (the Port of Las Palmas).
San Bartolomé de Tirajana
With its 33,13 km extension it forms the largest municipality of the island of Gran Canaria. The spectacular interior landscape of volcanic nature, manifest in its basins, gullies and rock formations, contrasts with the smoothness of its dunes along the coast. Its 32 km coastal line combines great beaches of clear sand with, to a lesser extent, beaches of volcanic sand and small cliffs. Its rocky seabed possesses a great diversity of marine life.
Situated in the Southeast of the island, it has a surface of 45,50kms. Its natural landscape is defined by the organ pipe cacti, tabaibas and palm trees of its gullies, in contrast with its marked relief land forms and the green of the pine trees areas that crown its heights; where the causeways of its gullies are frequently occupied with cultivated terraces. Mogan possesses important natural spaces shared with the bordering municipalities, the Integral Natural Reserve of Inagua (Reserva Natural Integral de Inagua) the pine tree areas of Inagua, Ojeda and Pajonales, and the Roque Nublo Rural Park.)
Right in the middle of the island of Gran Canaria and at its highest part, Tejeda’s mountain peaks crown the great Tejeda Depression which resulted from an immense collapsed caldera, shaped by water and inundated with volcanoes. Its basalt monoliths, treasured geological symbols of the island, crown the municipality and are a great tourist attraction.
Gáldar is located in the northwest of the island, adjacent to Agaete, Artenara and Santa María de Guía. Here the most representative of the archaeological sites in the Canaries is to be found: the Painted Cave, Cueva Pintada, with its invaluable samples of cave art produced by ancient indigenous people.
The coastal village of Agaete is one of the loveliest spots in the northwest of Gran Canaria. Open to the Atlantic Ocean, it offers visitors impressive views of coast and sea, contrasting with its green, fertile valleys climbing towards the centre of the island, making this municipality one of the most justly famed for its beauty in the entire archipelago.
