TejedaSpain

One of the smaller villages on Gran Canaria, pretty Tejeda is surrounded by some of the island’s most majestic natural landmarks. 

Stroll past the whitewashed houses and through the narrow streets of charming Tejeda to understand what life on the island might have been like in years gone by. Locals still meet in the small town square to chat during the warm evenings, while beyond the houses several immense volcanoes reach into the sky.

Tejeda lies on the face of the Caldera de Tejeda, a volcano crater. If you’re an avid hiker, walk to the top of the volcano for spectacular views into the crater. Spreading out below the rows of whitewashed houses, see cornfields and orchards dug into the tough volcanic soil.

Head to the Cruz de Tejeda, several miles northeast of the village. This stone cross set beside a winding mountain road marks the geographic center of Gran Canaria. At 5,180 feet (1,580 meters), the views over the surrounding peaks are superb. You’ll find a good restaurant here if you want to stop for lunch.

Enjoy another terrific lookout at Pico de las Nieves. The highest vantage point on the island stands at 6,394 feet (1,949 meters) above sea level and offers 360-degree views of rolling mountain ranges and pine forests. Look west to admire the giant Roque Nublo while farther east the Roque Bentayga emerges from cliffs coated in thick greenery.

During your time in Tejeda be sure to visit the Roque Nublo. Reach this gigantic volcanic slab by driving to La Goleta parking lot. From there it's about an hour's hike to the rock. Be sure to wear a hat and sturdy walking shoes and take some water. At the top, gaze at the island’s wild, western coast or join a local climbing school to take on the 220-foot (67-meter) rock.

Back in town, head out in the evening to enjoy a traditional meal in a local tavern and a romantic nighttime stroll through the streets.

Tejeda is about an hour’s drive from Las Palmas, the capital city of Gran Canaria. Accommodation is limited but several self-catering villas are available to rent.
