  • You should absolutely go, the best time is right after the breakfast, because then almost alone. You can go up very nicely on a paved road. The view in any direction is terrific, indescribably beautiful.

  • Based in the small municipality of Tejeda, a little away from the tourist routes, which also has its appeal. Religious site for the Canarian Aboriginals. On top of its 1,400 meters remains excavations in the soil of rock where made with milk and honey rituals related to the cult to the Sun and the Moon were the first settlers of the island. It has parking at the base where is the interpretation centre (closed because the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, the island government institution, it has abandoned). The ascent to the top of the mountain has a length of more than 1 km but by a flight of stairs more difficult makes it inaccessible to people with disabilities. The views from the top of the center of the island are spectacular, worth out of the typical Sun and beach and eat sooner or later in the village of Tejeda.
