The west side of Gran Canaria

Giants of Tamadaba and Andén Verde take the west side of Gran Canaria as an insurmountable Wall. The spectacular mountain range landscape reveals a dizzying falls on the deep blue Atlantic, witness of geological events that changed the face of this land. A spectacle of nature that has virginity, provided by its own strength of an unassailable castle. Capricious mountains rising to the sky for the gods that once upon a time shaped it. At the foot of Tamadaba, the main door of the giants Andén Verde, we can find Agaete, a village of inmmaculate whiteness, of incalculable charm, overlooking the sea in a sober harbor protected by its magnificient cliffs where the Dedo de Dios rises and points as an eternal lighthouse the destiny of their fishermen.

In the past, land of guanches and conquerors, Agaete preserves one of the most important guanche necropolis of Gran Canaria. In the midst of a volcanic wash, indigenous people worshiped their dead, as evidenced by the numerous burial mounds that remain in the malpais that simulates the pantheon of black lava.

Across the mountains, the village of La Aldea de San Nicolás de Tolentino, town of workers who have made the dry land its wealth. Delving into the streets supposed to reunite with a rich Canarian architecture of the sixteenth and seventeenth century and a wide cultural offer. The village retains the best aboriginal traditions. His Fiesta del Charco evokes the distant past of a people playing with the elements: earth, sea and sky.
