El Obelisco, officially known as the Obelisco de la Luz, is a lesser-known yet captivating sight in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Standing at Avenida José Mesa y López, this monument is not just a mere obelisk but a beacon of history and culture in the heart of the city. For photo-travelers, the best time to capture El Obelisco is during the golden hour, when the soft sunlight enhances its contours against the urban backdrop. Its location offers a unique blend of architectural photography opportunities, with modern buildings and bustling city life in the vicinity. Although it might seem like a straightforward structure, finding the right angle for photography can turn it into a striking feature against the city’s skyline or as part of a lively street scene. Incorporating local elements, such as the vibrant urban life or the contrast between the old and new architectural styles around, will enrich the narrative of your photos.
