Not seen anything like this before. The range of colours on display is really quite something. Yes it can be seen from a few miles away but it's well worth getting close up to it of possible. There are parking areas off the road alongside but I'd imagine that often they get busy. If possible tough, park up and take a mini-hike up the rocks for a short while to get a closer and better look.

Amazing.

Passing by bus or car you won't miss this fascinating exhibit of different coloured minerals trying perhaps to remember your Chemistry classes to guess their composition.

What a wonderful day out in the mountains, driving around the winding roads, going higher and higher. The colours on the rocks are spectacular, having being left by the minerals deposited so so long ago........a most interesting display. The weather was fine when we set off and were able to stop for photos, but later, the mist came down over the mountain tops, making a wonderful and dramatic picture. Noticed water running down the gulleys and a few isolated houses.....would need to be self sufficient to live here !
Stopped at Las Canados for lunch, which is a very typical and authentic restaurant, and obviously popular with the locals on a Sunday. So tasted lots of typical dishes including pork which was cooked on their open fire, cocidos ( stew of potatoes, chickpeas, chorizo ) all very tasty, finished off with lovely desserts and apple liqueur. A very interesting place as it has a little museum, full of old typewriters, sewing machines, telephones and everything you can think of, as well as a bedroom set out from years ago ! Plus an outside cage of salamanders, which I at first thought was a stone one as it never moved , and a pond of turtles........an amazing place !! Well recommended visit to Veneguera........breathtaking views, and those beautiful colours too.

I think it is worth the drive to see this, but you should plan other things too on the way. If you come from the Mogan area you can stop at the great road "Restaurante de las Canadas" on CG-200 for a meal or drinks before driving down to the cute village Venegueta with some very nice houses and gardens. There you can see the cliffs from afar. Then get back up on the road CG-200 again and you will soon get to the rocks. There is a juice stand with fruit vegetables and other local products, especially cactus based, and parking space. You might like to spend about 10-30 minutes here.

Unusually coloured geological rock formations caused by oxidation on the side of GC200 leading from Mógan to La Aldea. The name Fuente de los Azulejos means "fountain of tiles", because of these multicoloured rocks resembling tile colours. At one of the vantage points is a fruit market that has one of the best juices I have ever had. This is an ideal stop to stare along the winding road.

Beautiful multi-color geologic formations by the road from Mógan to La Aldea de San Nicolás de Tolentino. The same kind of formations you can see in Death Valley in California. Really cool!

Definitely worth a stop to see this beautiful view. You won't see any waterfall in summer. Lady that works in a little shop nearby said that you can only see waterfall in winter.

It's certainly worth the drive up here. The views are incredible and at one point we were almost in the clouds. Lots of places to stop and take photos and quite a few bars/restaurants along the way.

Sunday 23rd September and we were driving from Melonaras via San Nicolas de Tolentino to Las Palmas, taking the coastal route (Road 200). Along the journey this colourful rock formation, at Veneguera, could not be missed it was visible from a way off.

On another day we came from San Nicolas de Tolentino to Playa Mogan and the colourful rock formation was equally as impressive from the other direction.

There was a place to park up and take photographs and enjoy the most amazing sights. Where we parked there was a refreshments stall selling fruit juices.

Have never been very interested in geology, rock formations, but Gran Canaria and especially here were fascinating.

The words of the review and the photographs do not do this justice it has to been seen, amazing.

I'll admit it - we drove up here especially to see this! Mainly because we'd been through the mountains lots that week and still not managed to stop off here, and I just love anything to do with the nature. The fact that this has been made naturally blows me away, it's absolutely stunning. If you're not as nature minded as me, this may not be something that you'd drive out of your way for - but definitely combine it with visiting other things, and take the time to stop off if you are driving around in the area. On a sunny day the colours lit up and looked incredible.
We also bought some Canarian bananas from the fruit stall near here, and I would definitely recommend those too!
