Find out more about the Natural Monument of Roque Nublo:
The Natural Monument of Roque Nublo is one of the most emblematic natural spaces of Gran Canaria. The island was formed from three eruptive cycles, and the Roque Nublo, for its part, was formed during the second cycle. It is located at a height of 67 metres over its base, and at 1,813 metres above sea level. In the past, it was used like a place of worship by indigenous people. In 1987 it was declared Natural Space, and in 1994 was named Rural Park.
It is located in the Nublo Rural Park and situated in the geographical centre on the island. Specifically, on the lands of Tejeda, in a very steep place. There are other rocky formations next to the Roque Nublo, like Roque del Fraile and La Rana.
Gran Canaria has a total height of 1,949 metres thanks to Pico de las Nieves. El Roque Nublo, for its part, is the symbol par excellence of the island.
