Location

Gáldar, Canarias, Spain

In order to visit the municipality of Gáldar, you need to take the Northern Road Carretera del Norte from the capital of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This is an easy road running parallel to the north coast of Gran Canaria. To get to Gáldar, you first need to go through the towns of Bañaderos, Quintanilla and San Andrés, and then take the turnoff which is signposted Guía-Gáldar-Agaete. As this road has two lanes in both directions, the 27 kilometres from the capital can be covered in just 20 minutes.
Visitors who wish to get there by public transport need to take bus number 105.
The city of Gáldar, the centre of one of the former kingdoms of the island (Guanartematos), has part of its most distant past on display in the Archaeological Park of la Cueva Pintada, in the centre of the city. This is one of the major cave painting finds in the Atlantic region.
On the coast there is the town and necropolis of La Guancha, at present limited to an area of 24,000 m2, where we can see what the mausoleums of the early inhabitants of the island were like, the dwelling place of guaires and harimaguadas, as well as the burial mounds, including, among other Pre-Hispanic constructions, the largest burial mound preserved in the present day.
The centre of the city, which was given the status of Historic Area in 1981, retains several notable buildings.
The church Iglesia de Santiago de Gáldar, one of the most beautiful churches in the Canary Islands, serves as a link between the Baroque style and the first examples of neo-classicism of the Archipelago. From the remains of the sixteenth century construction interesting works of art have been preserved in the church, such as the Green Font, where the conquered Canary Islanders were first baptised. Several items of considerable value can be seen inside the church and in the museum next to it, such as paintings, sculptures and works in precious metals.
The Town Hall, built on top of an eighteenth century construction, has outstanding environmental features, with one of the oldest examples of the Drago (dragon tree) in Gran Canaria, documented as early as 1718.
Next to the Town Hall is the Municipal Theatre, built in 1912, which later replaced the older theatre founded by Isabel II.
Another notable element, known as the "Plaza Grande" (Large Square) is one of the best examples of a nineteenth century Canary Islands alameda, including centuries-old examples of Indian Laurel and Araucarias.
The Museo de Antonio Padrón, a few metres from the square, has over a hundred works of one of the best-known artists of the vanguard movements of the Archipelago in the XX century.
Visitors can also enjoy views of great beauty by going up to the Mountains of Gáldar and Amagro, from where the shaping of the landscape of this historic region can be appreciated. In the interior, a visit to los Pinos de Gáldar (the Gáldar Pines) is an excursion not to be missed, for the grandiose views and the outstanding geological and botanical interest of the surroundings.
While you are passing through, the Historic Centre of Barranco Hondo de Abajo offers the chance to observe one of the most outstanding troglodyte hamlets in the Archipelago, next to which a small ethnographic museum displays some of the main aspects of the more traditional culture of the peaks area of Gran Canaria.
There are many interesting places to bathe along the coast of the municipality. The most outstanding beaches are: playas de los Dos Roques; Punta de Galdar; la Caleta de Arriba; la Caleta de Abajo; la rada del Juncal; la playa de El Agujero, as well as many other shelters and natural swimming pools.
