El Carrizal de Tejeda

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.

- 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.).
