The town of Tejeda is just 9 kilometers away and is a must-see if you want to explore the island's archaeological heritage. There you will find vestiges of cave burials, paintings and houses. You can also visit Bentayga Archaeological Park, an ecomuseum that acts as an interpretive center for the archaeological complex that includes Bentayga, Andén de Tabacalete, Cuevas del Rey and El Roquete.
Culture and art are the perfect complement to tourism and leisure in Tejeda. You can visit the Abraham Cárdenes Sculpture Museum and admire some of the work of this important Canary Islands sculptor, who was originally from Tejeda and a lover of his homeland. Another interesting option is the Medicinal Plant Center, which invites you to discover the plant, herb and flower varieties native to Tejeda and the island.
The Parador de Cruz de Tejeda awaits you, located in a glorious spot from which you can explore the lovely island of Gran Canaria, considered by many to be a continent in miniature because of the variety of beautiful landscapes it is home to.
