In case you were wondering why there’re lots of dog monuments in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, it’s quite simple: Insulae Canariae (Canary Islands) in latin means ‘Islands of the Dogs’.

According to one of the versions, the Guanches (original inhabitants of the island) used to worship dogs and considered them to be holy animals, thus there was always a big number of this four-legged animal around since that time.
