We drove all around the island on the first Sunday in June. Impossibly high, winding mountain roads led us to this place and it was very beautiful. We had a nice lunch and a walk all around before heading back off. Nice memory.

Brilliantly laid out and well annotated. A little bit of a hike to get there but very interesting and worth the walk.

Ancient burial ground on the outskirts of Agaete, there is a signposted walk through the burial mounds which have been constructed on a lava flow. Very well organised (why can't we do this in the UK?). Highly recommended.

What a find! So many burial chambers from 1000-2000 years old. To find the site you climb to the top of Agaete Old Town and the entrance is near the Community Sports Stadium. There is a free car park with nearer access for disabled visitors....More

Just happened on this place while walking. Not expensive. It's a very old site well set out with good disabled access.

Maipes, from "mal pais", barren land is a place covered in lava where the Guanches used to bury their dead. There is a nice iron walking path and the place is well signposted in Spanish, English and German
