Barranco de Guayadeque, Gran Canaria

4.6
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.

  • If you find yourself in gran canaria and you don't want to just do sea life, spend a few hours to see the barranco. From the normal connecting roads you will find yourself in the middle of a canyon of beautiful colors. The village is quaint and the people available. Some people still live in caves as, very quaint. Here you will also find restaurants in the caves where you can eat. I like nature so I really enjoyed the view of this canyon. I had read however a review indicating the presence of waterfalls, here I asked a lot of people living there who confirmed to me instead that it is not in this barranco that you are located the waterfalls. So don't do like me ahaha, don't get in the way and don't waste time looking for them.

  • In Gran Canaria there is not much to visit so it is worth coming to see this small village of only 20 inhabitants. After a beautiful but winding road, full of prickly pears you get to the end of the road where you somehow manage to park; Just before there is a large parking lot but only for customers of the Tagoror restaurant. Parked the car you walk the pedestrian street, with beautiful views of the Canyon below, where the entrances of the houses built inside the rock and with a circular ride in half an hour you return to the parking lot. There are a few restaurants also dug into the rock and a small gift shop to visit to see the interior of a house.

  • 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.
