The Barranco de Guayadeque ravine is situated right between the municipalities of Agüimes and Ingenio, to the east of the island of Gran Canaria.
The unique environmental value and heritage that make up this impressive area have contributed to it being declared a Natural Monument by the Law of Natural Areas of the Canaries, and as a Site of Cultural Interest, under the category of Archaeological Zone by the Law of Historical Heritage of the Canaries.
Its location here represents the island’s greatest density of archaeological sites, spread along both slopes of the Ravine, among which troglodyte habitats abound, under escarpment ledges and on hillsides. It is considered one of the most stunning cultural landscapes in Gran Canaria.
The Visitors Centre provides complete information on all the archaeological sites in the area, as well as other useful environmental data that explain the many interesting facts and figures to do with this beautiful setting.
