Cities

According to Normalización#Núcleos de población to tag with place=city a place must have a population of at least 100,000 people or be the capital of the Province. There are only two cities in Canary Island that match these conditions: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Both are co-capital of the Autonomus Community.

Note that places like Telde or La Laguna have a population below 100,000 (in the town) although the full municipality is above this amount (see Normalización/town and Normalización/village).
