Description of the environment
The historic areas of Santa Lucía are well worth a visit. Highlights include a walk to the famous fortress of Fortaleza de Ansite, a volcanic building where there are many caves which were used for dwellings and burials by the native inhabitants and where a large number of archaeological items have been found. It is also possible to see burial sites in natural caves in the fortress, normally associated with inhabited areas.
Burial mounds are found less frequently in this municipality and have only been recorded in the area of Pozo Izquierdo, at the beach of the same name. In 1905, the church Iglesia de Santa Lucía was built right in the town square, on a rise, replacing the ancient chapel. These days it is one of the main places to visit in the municipality.
The Museo Castillo de la Fortaleza, in the centre of Santa Lucía, is also recommended to visitors for its historical and cultural interest. It is primarily an archaeological museum, as the exhibits are of remains found in the archaeological sites of the area. Ethnographical, botanical and zoological items can also be viewed. There is a garden near the museum with autochthonous flora and fruit trees from several latitudes.
Those who prefer excursions in the natural surroundings of the municipality should not miss la Caldera de Tirajana, in the central area of Gran Canaria with a southeast orientation. This is wide volcanic basin where the towns of Santa Lucía and San Bartolomé de Tirajana are located. The landscape here is considered unique, as it combines the rugged scenery of the territory, the architecture, the richness of the vegetation and the agricultural scenery.
The Barranco de Tirajana (the Tirajana ravine) has its origins in the Caldera de Tirajana and it runs into the sea around the flat land at Juan Grande. This ravine has a length of 76 square kilometres and there the visitor can see different archaeological, botanical and geological aspects of interest. A dam called the Presa de la Sorrueda has been built in its basin. In these surroundings stand the most beautiful and extensive palm groves on the island. They are especially attractive in the Palmeral de la Sorrueda which lies near the dam.
The municipality of Santa Lucía borders the sea. On the coast there is a beach considered one of the main windsurfing beaches, Pozo Izquierdo, known as an area often battered by winds.
It has been chosen as one of the principal places for the holding of the world windsurfing championship. In fact, this beach is the home of the International Windsurfing Centre, equipped with the facilities required for this water sport, with swimming pools and shops specialising in this activity.
Santa Lucía is a municipality with a great deal of commercial activity, enhanced by the increase in the population of the area. Vecindario is one of the major commercial areas of the island. This is where the large shopping centres can be found (C. C. Atlántico, C. C. La Ciel, C. C. Avenida de Canarias), with easy access on the southern motorway. Fashion stores, large leisure centres (restaurants, cinemas, terrace bars...), large supermarkets, etc, can all be found within Vecindario.
For those who wish to discover the typical products of the land and the handcrafts of the municipality, the markets are a must. These are held every Wednesday in Vecindario and on Sundays in the centre of Santa Lucía.
You can also visit the Handcraft Centre in the municipality, located in Vecindario, in la Era Park. Here you can see the items being produced and objects of pottery, basketwork and the making of the Canary Islands knife.
The traditional pottery in Santa Lucía is characterised by the legacy of the technique of the native inhabitants, with the modelling of the vessels being done exclusively by hand. The raw materials used are clay, ravine sand, red ochre and wood for firing. For the making of baskets vegetable fibres are used, including palm branches, palm leaves, reeds and rushes.
At the Handicraft Centre there is a shop and an exhibition room which are open every day of the week.
In the municipality of Santa Lucía you can try any dish typical of Canary Island cuisine at any one of the more popular restaurants, both in the town centre of Santa Lucía and in that of Vecindario.
Wrinkled potatoes, Canary Islands stew, sancocho (boiled salted fish), rabbit in sauce or local olives are some of the dishes offered by the restaurants of the interior.
