Isle of Gran Canaria

Nothern coast, on the traces of the aboriginals

If you are interested in getting in touch with native canarian people you should visit the nothern coast of the island.

In Arucas they are distilling original canarian rum. You should have a shot at this. It’s delicous!

Between Gáldar and Agaete you will find a lot of caves. These are the places, the aboriginal Canarians, called “Guanches“, were living in.

The most spectacular one, I think, is the “Cueva Pintada” placed in Gáldar. You will discover cave-paintings in white, red and black colour.

The biggest cave you will see in Tunte (San Bartolomé de Tirajana), which has been the aboriginals living room and granary.
