Following the Course of Water

The ravine bed of Barranco Guiniguada used to be considered as a river in the past and provided for the first settlement of the island of Gran Canaria after the Spanish Conquest. Irrigation channels were created and lands were farmed for exportation and internal supply. The riverbed and its surroundings became the vegetable garden of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

The now only ravine bed of Guiniguada is splashed by this heritage linked to water which enables walkers to go on a trip through time, from the history of the first human occupation to the great infrastructures of modern times.
