La Sorrueda Viewpoint

A ravine, a dam, and palm trees
This gem of the Santa Lucía de Tirajana municipality is next to The Fortress, where the original pre-hispanic inhabitants resistance made its last stand during the conquest of the fifteenth century. Its spectacular views include the mountainous slopes of the Tirajana canyon surrounding the La Sorrueda dam and palm groves typical of the island’s central southern region.
A view with history
Our gaze comes to rest on La Sorrueda dam, on the striking rocks that seem to observe visitors. We also experience vivid colours that paint the water dark blue and a surprising shade of green.

Sustainability
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.
- 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 different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, binoculars and telescopes, etc.).
- Respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths and spaces causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
