Ayagaures

A hamlet hidden in the valleys
Hidden in the deep valleys of south Gran Canaria, Ayagaures hamlet with its discreet, traditional houses made from local stone, is surrounded by arid landscapes sheltering native plants. Life here still revolves around traditional activities such as goat herding and stone quarrying.
One of Gran Canaria’s most important reservoirs
The name Ayagaures comes from the areas pre-Hispanic language and means “between two mountains”. The valley’s reservoir, surrounded by palm trees, pines and dragon trees, is one of the island’s most important and also its most picturesque. Look out for the low stone buildings made from stone quarried in the valley. While you can drive up the Ayagaures valley the walk here from San Bartolomé de Tirajana, route info in the town tourist office, is spectacular.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
