Worth seeing

 

Parroquia de San Antonio de Padua
Plaza de Sarmiento y Coto
35140 Mogán
Tel. 928 56 90 03

The church was built thanks to the fact, that a big part of the capital was donated by an emigrant from Tejeda, Matias Sarmiento, who was living in Havana. The construction was stopped several times. But in 1811, Cabilde Catedralicio supported the church, and it was finished 2 Years later.


Molino de Viento

 

This windmill, after which the neighbourhood is named, is one of the few to be found on the island. The beautiful old Windmill in Mogán origin 1700 has been renovated in 1998 by an craftsman from Lanzarote, with wood imported from Honduras. It played an important part in the history of Mogán, as it was here that local people brought their grain to be milled to obtain gofio, the staple foodstuff of the time. In ruins for decades following a fire, it was recently restored and is now in working order.

Trip suggestions

Soria & Barranquillo Andrés
Barranco de Arguineguín
 

These villages are found in the mountainous interior of the municipality.

The largest reservoir on the island is found in Soria. Ancient constructions along the shores of the reservoir which have resisted rising waters, offer insight into the architecture of the time. The water is transported in a system built of slaves in the 16th and 17th Centuries.

Walkers can explore the area as there are good foot paths connecting the reservoirs and leading to Tauro mountain.


Tauro Alto

Veneguera
 

A small hamlet located in an area of great beauty in the midst of palm groves and cardón plants. An extraordinary example of typical canarian architecture is found in the vicinity of the street named Los Almácigos and also in Pié de la Cuesta; a motley collection of stone walled, tiled houses with wooden balconies, patios and animal sheds.
In Barranco de Veneguera, you  also find Las Casas de Veneguera, which come Christmas is one of the most interesting places on Gran Canaria.


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
