HIKING IN GRAN CANARIA: ROQUE NUBLO

This is a highly recommended visit; 5km in 3 hours from Culata de Tejeda to one of the more emblematic geographic points, Roque Nublo. It is located in the centre of the island, with an altitude of 1813m and 80m from its base. From here we will be able to enjoy one of the most panoramic views of the island.

 

We find ourselves in front of a mountainous building of great altitude. For the inhabitants of the island this place has an added value, since in the past it was home to many aboriginal cults.

 

As far as the vegetation, we can observe the presence of the Canarian pine with its unmistakable three-needle leaf. The fauna is mostly represented by groups of birds of prey as well as some reptiles like small and medium lizards.
