  • An amazing archeological site very well looked after. The display in the three rooms by reception is informative and then the walk around the site has good notices in Spanish, English and German. The ...  more »
  • This was a surprise of a find. We stumbled across this necropolis to find out about the cemetery of approx 900 people. very interesting history.  more »
  • interesting... a lot of stones you can go to the website gratuitemetn, but otherwise the access to the exhibition is paid, but it is very useful to understand the different graves that exist and the history of the site... (and tickets are valid for 1 year... so we can go back as far as you want..)

  • Set amongst the beautiful landscape of southern Gran Canaria, these ~800 tombs are well worth a visit. Entrance available as part of a combined €10 ticket to see all the archeological sites on the island or individual tickets for €4 (€2 for students). There's a small but well laid out museum explaining the history of the area and the burial process as well as some footpaths (slightly rough ground and steep at times) following different routes around the tombs. Accessible via bus 45 from Maspalomas (check the times as they're infrequent) or there's free parking at the museum. We stopped off here at the start of a hike through the mountains from Arteara to Ayaguares.
  • Small but interesting little museum about the original inhabitants of the island and their burial rites. We caught the 18 bus from Playas del Ingles to Arteatra where we were walking back to Maspolamas on the dirt road which is well signposted.
  • Informative site, unfortunately the visitors centre closed at 2pm , but you can still access the site on a public footpath at the side after this time. The graves show you just how a pile of stones can be important archaeological and culturally.
  • After a walk from the parking lot to the entrance , we recognized it´s closed today. Why must we walk about 1km to read this ? It´s possible to write down this information nearby the parking lot, ist´s it ?
  • This is worth the hike. A very quiet path to view an interesting group of funeral mounds
