  • This site is rated since 1974 rightly for its exceptional historical, ethnographical and geological value. In recent years, a course laid out and very well integrated with the environment, with stations of documentation, to understand the importance of this site where the dead under large mounds of lava stone were interred. Among the 700 tombs present originally, some were restored. Very interesting for youth as well as adults.

  • Those who are interested in the life of the original inhabitants of Gran Canaria, is here. Very informative tour through a city of the dead in an impressive excavation!

  • Not easy to find. Agaete from not the road into the Valley, follow direction Los Berrazales, but first right turn. Here, at the beginning of the Valley, is surrounded by a lunar landscape dark lava stones (bad country = Maipes) a large burial ground of old Canarian found. 52 of the tombs, called tumuli, are more or less restored and combined into an archaeological Park. Best to visit the small information centre only. From there, there's a well landscaped path through the whole system. On good info Tafeknerfährt labeled more, not only about individual tumuli man, but also the emergence of the Maipes and the flora barren. A few of the round tumuli are open at the top, and you can see the skeletons of the dead. Who is really interested in the history of the old Canarian, can learn much here. Take time for the tour about 1 hour.
