Mountain Village "Fataga" - Valley of Tirajana

Published in Living in Gran Canaria

[gallery] This time we would like to present you another beautiful place of Gran Canaria. The village of Fataga is located in the rocky Valley of Tirajana. Fataga is an Oasis surrounded by many palm and pine trees. Fataga has an history which goes back 2.000 years in time. Already the ancient Canarian aborigenes used to live and cultivate in this very fertile area. You can visit Fataga taking the road GC-520 from Playa Inglés. The way to the village is already worth seeing. If you have more time you can continue the road passing by Roque Nublo and the highest point of Gran Canaria: Pico de las Nieves. As a picture say more than a thousands words we would like to leave you with some pictures of the Austrian photographer Thomas Borstner.
