Hamlet with traditional Gran Canaria handicrafts
This hamlet in the central highlands of Gran Canaria is named after the abundance of canes that grows in the area and was once famous for the cane roofs and huts made by it’s weavers.Today they focus on baskets and brushes. A small hamlet but one full of charm and surrounded by impressive mountain landscapes: Its whitewashed and tiled houses seem to cling to the mountainside.
Dreamlike landscapes in Tejeda
It’s worth driving to El Carrizal de Tejeda via the carretera de las presas (the reservoir road) as the landscapes are breathtaking. The hamlet is on many of the hiking trails between Tejeda’s many geological features.Once you arrive visit the San José hermitage with its ancient images. In the bar, enjoy a cold drink and wait around for the famous sunsets with the light fading into the deep valleys while Tenerife sits in silhouette on the horizon.
