  • Low interest opportunity part of authorities in preserving and disseminating culture. Sure 90% of tourists no longer "touristy" have not told that there is

  • Get away from all the idiotic tourist crowds? Then really these natural and carved caves. There are many more than four. ... You have really need profile shoes with soles. Unsuitable for people with walking difficulties and very young children. The are pretty shallow caves and you can get them pretty quickly and watch for free. However, it is worth to stay here a little longer, because it is a very special place with palpable history. Apparently, there are still many question marks about the earlier use of these caves. It was a storage place, a ritual place, a shelter for shepherds with their animals? What is the purpose of that uitkervingen in the ground? It is according to the signs unknown and that's kind of fun for your own imagination. Beautiful meditation spot at dawn or doom! There is no public house in sight here, so please drink and/or a packed lunch (bring your waste though!). The view is particularly on clear days. Las Palmas, the coast and the airport can be seen. On the other hand, the mountains of the Interior. Certainly also fun for kids to go visit. Take your camera with me!

  • To find the site trpadvisor map is correct, with the caveat that the track is in poor condition and agrees to park your car on the forecourt before the ramp Terminal: turn your car on the final square in front of the entrance to the site is not easy for the steep and stony soil and moved. Despite the site's free has excellent signage indicating the route for the four areas of interest. The path is not too easy and are preferable trekking shoes. The first thing you see in the large cave with 4 doors that gives its name to the site, then climbs on top of the rock with an Esplanade that presents a mysterious circular excavation; go down and then to the caves in one of which the friendly caretaker of the site directed us to the pubic triangle-shaped incisions (cult of fertility?). Proceeding further (is the hardest path portion and to go with a minimum of care) leads to a complex series of caves housing units of considerable charm. So much so that 63 years ago there was filmed one of the last scenes of the movie ' the Island Princess (' Tirma ' in the Spanish version) starring Silvana Pampanini and Marcello Mastroianni. You can easily verify by seeing the film on the internet that the scuff marks and some engravings in this area date back to staging the film.
