Gran Canaria

10 Highlights not to be missed

A trip to the past in the Cueva Pintada de Gáldar (The Painted Cave of Gáldar)

Do you want to know how the past settlers of Gran Canaria lived? If the bug bites you, we suggest you visit one of the most important archaeological sites of the Canary Islands: La Cueva Pintada de Gáldar (the Painted Cave of Gáldar).

A walk through the Painted Cave Archaeological Museum and Park is a trip to the past that will not leave you indifferent. The museum is the result of more than 24 years of excavation and conservation work of a valuable archaeological group. The museum building has been constructed around a Canarian aboriginal village, which is an exceptional testimony of an ancestral culture.

A visit you must not miss out on if you are interested in discovering an ancestral culture belonging to our islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Let yourself be surprised and take a trip to the past, to a time of aborigines, when the Fortunate Islands marked the limits with the end of the old world!
