Camino de la Plata

In Gran Canaria, an extensive network of highways, paths and trails are available to get into the most hidden and amazing places of the island’s geography. Many of these roads were created by the ancient locals of the island long before the conquest.

They have been expanded and improved till the present day. This route stands out due to the beauty of its paths and its extraordinary natural and historical values.

Average difficulty Lineal 13 km 4:30 h - -




Degollada Becerra – Garañón – Pasos de La Plata – Tunte.

The current course of the route was an important pre-Hispanic cattle way, which was connected to Tirajana’s pasture, in the south of the island, with Gáldar’s in the cool north. The landowner of Tirajana made improvements in the late 19th century to reduce the terrain’s difficulty, allowing migratory flocks, travelers and pilgrims travel easier, when road communications didn’t exist.

The walk passes through pine forests, low hills where broom stands out, rocky flats, open terrain and dry vegetation with tajinastes, verodes, etc.
