Modern establishments seem to take away the charm and popularity of old establishments, which may have created the lure of tourists in the first place. The phenomenon is present everywhere, in every tourist destination in the world.

Often old establishments are forgotten to give way to new more modern means of entertainment. A few resorts in parts of Southern Europe are a fine example of this phenomenon. The all-new resorts at the island of Mallorca in the Balearics are designed beautifully which attracts most of the tourists coming in from far corners of the globe to see the island.

However, earlier it wasn’t these resorts that beckoned travelers from all across the world. It was the scenic gravity of places like the Tramuntana mountain range and monasteries located in the inland towns that served as tourist attractions. These are slowly being forgotten.

Various spots including a few of the Canary Islands too are victim of this evolution. Tenerife and Gran Canaria are perfect examples of this trend. The tourism in Gran Canaria was synonymous with the northern region at one point, but now the focus has shifted to the south of the island, where modern resorts and sandy beaches have taken away from the quaint small town charm.

Areas like San Agustin, Puerto Rico and Playa del Ingles have become hot spots on the island and the capital Las Palmas has almost been forgotten.

Gran Canaria has many gems in its case to be proud of. The town of San Nicolas, stretching from the east to the western coast of the island, offers a great ride. The drive is scenic and pleasurably memorable as it offers a great view of the Atlantic.

The Cenobio de Valeron that was initially a settlement of people from Africa is a network of caves in volcanic rocks. It is located in the north of Gran Canaria near Santa Monica de Guia.

One spot that has maintained the perfect balance between the old and the new is Puerto de Mogan. It has no high rise constructions and still maintains a certain old world charm around itself thereby attracting a lot of tourists.
