Highlights

  • Ridge walk – Caldera de Bandama

    Hiking Highlight (Segment)

    Directions
    between the stone walls the path leads down into the caldera. Below we come across a crumbling homestead on a eucalyptus tree. A dilapidated tree press bears witness to better times. After our round through the lush vegetation we climb up again. At the top we go left to the golf course, along the edge of which we get to the upper circuit.

  • Roque Nublo

    Hiking Highlight

    Roque Nublo is considered the symbol of Gran Canaria and measures about 80 meters high. In the time of the Guanches it was a sacred mountain, and as such, they built a place of worship at its foot where sacrifices were made to the Sun god.
    It is worth a visit. Just the way there is already very beautiful. Also, from above there are good views of other nearby rock monoliths.
    Tip: early in the morning there are usually not so many people. We were almost the only visitors and we were able to enjoy Roque Nublo without problems :-)

  • Plaza de Santa Ana

    Hiking Highlight

    Every imaginary path through the history of Gran Canaria should begin in Santa Ana Square, which stretches out like a beating heart in the Vegueta district. It used to be known as Freedom and Constitution Square, but it has always been the city's main square.The cathedral with its tall towers rises on top of it, the architectural complex of which is a witness and symbol of what happened in the past centuries.The namesake of the square is Saint Anne, to whom the cathedral is dedicated. Solemn processions took place around the square in the open air as early as 1539. They were always a stronghold of enjoyment and relaxation for the visitors, who watched the action in the shade of the palm trees, surrounded by the lively and harmonious trot of the horses.The Santa Ana square is not only a witness of the past, but also symbolizes it in all its splendor and with its adjacent buildings. The square merged with the surrounding buildings into an inseparable unit.For centuries, Santa Ana Square was the preferred place for the city's important celebrations and events such as the Easter processions or the founding celebrations of Las Palmas on June 24th. Over the centuries, the square has benefited from various renovation and beautification works.las-palmas-24.com/index.php?sehenswuerdheiten-las-palmas-platz-santa-ana

    After two days of touring, we're going to take it easy today and look at a few tourist highlights. The first is the Caldera de Bandama, a picture-perfect volcano whose prominent cone rises conspicuously from the green landscape around it. The Camino Borde de la Caldera runs along its edge, which we devote

    Accessible for free, the Gran Canaria Botanical Gardens deal extensively (and primarily) with the many endemic plants of the Canary Islands and brings together a very impressive collection. The dragon trees and the gigantic cacti alone are worth a visit.

    According to Touri-Info, the Barranco de Guyadeque has the highest concentration of archaeological sites (however, we do not plan to visit the relevant information center today). When reading about the Barranco in guidebooks, one of the main things that is emphasized is that it is one of the last places

    On its north side, Maspalomas merges seamlessly into Playa des Ingles, a symbol of mass tourism and the source of associations that for a long time only came to my mind with the term "Gran Canaria" and were not at all mine. On the other hand, I wasn't aware of the dune landscape that exists here. If

    For our first full day on Gran Canaria we decided to do a shorter tour to see how fast we can progress on the trails and how to deal with the climate. It's great to finally be able to start again with 20 degrees and sun.

    In Agaete at our starting point is one of the most important archaeological burial

    Today we did the tour that I was looking forward to the most - I got nervous even during the planning. At least once it should go over one of the kingsroads in the central mountains of GC. Due to the rather rare bus opportunities in the interior of the island, we skipped breakfast and planned on when

    After yesterday's exhausting tour we took it easy today, our last full day on GC. Compared to the other barrancos that we have hiked on our hikes in the last few days, this one is extraordinarily rich in water and accordingly lushly overgrown. After passing a levada, the creek flows freely at the back
