Must see · Cave · Wildlife Area
Barranco de Guayadeque is a cliff top filled with indigenous plants and natural caves originally settled by pioneers on the island. Visit the museum for a look at many of the artifacts they left behind. You can drive or catch a tour bus to see the caves themselves, many of which are still inhabited today, though they are now wired for electricity. Some of the residents may even invite you inside. A restaurant on the cliff offers traditional Canarian fare such as fried pork, traditionally prepared boiled potatoes, and local wine.

  • Interesting to see how people live and lived at the end of the road -far up in the mountains :) We recommend it!  more »
  • Interesting to see how the mountains were adopted into homes...Tidy..landscaped...and fantastic. Another flavour of the Gran Canaria. There are a choice of a few restaurants....we ate at Restaurante.....  more »
  • The place that's marked on Maps is pretty misleading - there are some very old and almost unreadable information tablets there and a "monumento" sign right next to a driveway that leads to a house at the bottom of the mountain. We were very unclear if this was supposed to be a tourist spot or a private home and when an aggressive dog barked at me from afar we drove on. The valley itself is very impressive with the high rockwalls on both sides and more green vegetation than you see on tve whole coastline. Some of the few homes built into the rocks were also interesting - it's just too bad that it's a dead end and you have to drive the same way back.
  • Really nice valley, the view at the end is stunning! The road through the valley is fun to drive and you can see a lot of houses that are built into the mountains.
