Trip suggestions

Parque Rural del Nublo

Is the biggest protected natural area on the Island. The area is  26.307 ha. about the same size as La Gomera, and it is spread out between 8 Municipalities, Tejeda, La Aldea de San Nicolás, Mogán, San Bartolomé de Tirajana, Artenara, San Mateo, Valleseco and Moya


Parque Natural de Tamadaba
Risco del Faneque
35350 Artenara

The Canary Islands government has now placed a conservation order on this area, following the successful reforestation policy conducted in Gran Canaria since the middle of the 20th century.

The government has succeeded in recovering threatened areas, such as the Tamadaba massif, now covered with spectacular pinewoods.

Within this pine forest are some very grand old trees, while from the craggy foothills, such as Risco del Faneque, there's a fantastic view of the town of Agaete and Anden Verde, with its cliffs descending sharply into the sea.


We are not talking about restaurants on the page, but the entrance to this, you find here in Artenara. Through a 20 meter tunnel you'll find this view......     Gallery

History

Artenara is the highest situated City on Gran Canaria, where big parts of the population still lives in caves. Guanches who lived on this Island noticed the advantages by digging their houses direct into the Mountain. To day the caves are modernised, and they are used to obtain a more level inertial climate.
