Tirajana: Palm Trees and Olive Trees
This route starts in Santa Lucía de Tirajana, an oasis among the great crags and ravines. This small town is surrounded by a vast palm grove and stands out for its production of olive oil. The path, easy and quite smooth, crosses the Ingenio lands and leads onto La Fortaleza.
La Fortaleza is a basaltic outcrop in the middle of a ravine that the aboriginal Canarians used to use as a fortified settlement. This spectacular site shows many natural caves and cultivated fields which were used as dwellings, silos or for burials and funerary rites.
This route includes:
- Visit to a traditional oil mill
- Visit to the archeological site 'La Fortaleza'
