Home to about 400,000 people, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has a very diverse population. Known historically as part of a traditionally Catholic nation (Spain), the island of Gran Canaria has now become home to people from all over the world, many of whom speak different languages and believe in different faiths. It is common to meet people from all over Europe, Asia and the Middle East as well as the continents of Africa and The Americas. It is a city rich with heritage and tradition. But it is also a city filled with people who have not yet heard the Gospel for the first time.
