It's worth visiting this place because of its cultural and historical value on Gran Canaria. The granaries at Cenobio de Valerón have been prepared for visits and receptions. Visitors can visit this place alone or go on a guided tour. There is a car park...More

We drove over one morning in January. There were a handful of other people there so it didn't feel crowded, but this could be more in the summer. There was a small roadside parking area with space for half a dozen cars. The road to...More

This attraction takes only a couple of hours and ticks a lot of boxes. Free parking, 3 Euros to access and easy access after a fairly steep but staircase climb. You will see honeycomb caves used many moons ago to Counsel and store food. Facinating...More

During a two-week holiday in Gran Canaria, my wife and I visited the Cenobio de Valerón archaeological site. There is limited parking on the road outside. The entry fee is only Euro 3 pp, so is quite reasonable. The site is a complex system of...More

From the road it is about 10 minutes up some steps. I did not find it vertiginous at all (and can be affected). You can't imagine how hard it would have been to get there before the road and steps! It reminds us how much...More
