Firgas

A waterfall in the middle of the old town
Firgas, in norte Gran Canaria, is a small town full of charm. Its history has long been connected to water and today an artificial waterfall flows down the steps right in the centre of its old town, tumbling 30 metres down Paseo de Gran Canaria street. The pretty old town is compact and a beautiful place for a stroll.
Beautiful views of north Gran Canaria and pretty streets
The old town centres around the San Roque church and square. From the viewpoint in the square the north Gran Canaria landscape stretches down to the Atlantic Ocean. Firgas’ water mill, the oldest in the Canary Islands still in use, has been renovated and is open to visitors. After a walk through Firgas’ charming streets, many decorated with original glazed tiles, there are plenty of grill restaurants ready to cook you a meal over charcoal.

Sostenibilidad
- 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.).
