Apart from the charm of its beaches and climate, the island of Gran Canaria has equally striking magnetism in its inland villages.
There are many charming villages that deserve to be visited by anyone who is interested in the island’s culture. Today, we'll tell about some of those villages, proving how varied Gran Canaria’s Tourism can be for the many different types of visitors we always welcome in the island.
Mogán is one of those towns you must visit in the southern part of the island. An ideal place to enjoy the beautiful sunshine on its heavenly beach. Mogán is the second largest town of Gran Canaria. It is located in a beautiful valley that runs from the ravine of El Mulato to the coast. Its most renowned beaches are Puerto Rico, Amadores and Tauro. All of them are the perfect spot to enjoy perfect family days surrounded by the spectacular pristine blue water.
Puerto de Mogán is one of the most important tourist spots in the area. Many of its regulars describe Puerto de Mogán as a real paradise, not only for its tranquility, but also because its gastronomic and shopping offer fully lives up to their expectations.
This little village in the north of Gran Canaria is surrounded by natural charms. Some of its allures for the adventurous ones is the trekking route of The Thousand Sources ravine -El Barranco de las Mil Fuentes- among others. Firgas natural heritage is very rich as it is located right in Monte Doramas Natural Park.
Firgas is known as Villa del Agua -Villa of Water-, since water is the main protagonist of its history, as you’ll see in its thirty meters long artificial waterfall fountain in the old Calle Real, nowadays called Paseo de Gran Canaria. Another interesting sight is the sixteenth century cereal watermill, known as Molino del Conde, located on the road to Valleseco.
Its streets are inviting to go for pleasantly quiet walks. In the village center you’ll discover not only San Roque’s Plaza and Church (1845) but the stunning surroundings among which are the magnificent sight of the Atlantic Ocean and the north part of Gran Canaria.
It is the highest and less populated village in the island of Gran Canaria. The rough terrain which surrounds Artenara makes it look like the balcony over the World’s Biosphere Reserve of Gran Canaria. It is one of the best views of the island. The Spanish writer Miguel de Unamuno, christened this town as "The Petrified Storm", describing the volcanic summit of Gran Canaria.
It is a quiet place, perfect for a hiking or simply to relax and enjoy the sight. It also invites you to explore the entire area, from Pinar de Tamadaba’s Natural Park. One of the main features of Artenara are the prehistoric cave houses, as this is one of the most important Aboriginal centers of the island.
The village houses are sober and functional; there are no big buildings but a mix and match of architectural styles from different eras and influences.
