"The villa is in the beau...

  • 5 of 5

"The villa is in the beautiful village of Tejeda and has wonderful views facing towards Artenara. The villa provides spacious accommodation for four adults, and there is an extra bed in one room and a child's cot in another, to sleep up to 5 adults. The village is quiet but has some basic amenities near by - a wonderful bakery and patisserie, a small Spar (opens only during certain times of the year), several restaurants and cafes.

The villa has a terrace but unfortunately during our stay in January, the sun never shone directly on to the terrace, and the villa was slightly cold although it does have heating and adequate hot water. There are plenty of other spaces you can sit in in Tejeda to enjoy the sun though, and it is a great location for hiking and cycling."

Mooi, netjes maar koud en geen zon in januari op het terras.

  • 3 of 5

We werden gastvrij ontvangen met een fles wijn, een mand sinaasappels en wat andere lekkernijen. Het is een mooi huis en lekkker schoon. Wij waren er in januari en ondanks dat het meestal mooi weer was was het erg fris in huis. Ook op het terras was het koud omdat er de hele dag geen zon kwam. In de zomer zal het ongetwijfeld een fantastisch vakantiehuis zijn op een mooie locatie maar nu was het wat frisjes

Maravillosa casa para vivir

  • 5 of 5

Una casa fantástica, preciosa y decorada con buen gusto, situada en el centro de Tejeda y con una terraza tranquila de vistas espectaculares.

Al llegar eres muy bien recibido por Ángela, que te ayuda en lo que necesites y tiene la casa en perfecto estado.

Pasamos unos días muy agradables en el pueblo y en la zona.

Beautiful house in mountain village

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, very complete and homey house, with mountainview from the terras (sunshine breakfasts and dinner from april). The nights can be cold, even in April. We stayed here three times in winter/spring, and love friendly Tejada. Everything you need as a tourist is in this scenic mountain village: a supermarket, a few restaurants and most importantly it's gem the dulceria Nublio! It's perfectly located on the island for us nature lovers and mountainbikers.

Eine stilvolle Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus befindet sich mitten im Ort neben der Kirche, ist aber sehr ruhig gelegen mit wunderbarer Aussicht und zwei schönen Terrassen. Ein kleiner Laden und diverse Lokale sind nur wenige Schritte entfernt. Direkt vom Haus aus lassen sich schöne Wanderungen unternehmen. Das Haus war in einem sehr guten Zustand, sehr sauber und ist praktisch eingerichtet. WLAN funktionierte bestens.

Car: recommended

The municipality of Tejeda lies 44 kilometres from the capital of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. From Las Palmas you can get to Tejeda by taking the GC 15 (Carretera del Centro). It is a rather winding road amid beautiful scenery, passing through the municipalities of Santa Brígida and San Mateo. In a private car the 44-kilometre-drive can be done in about an hour.

In the case of public transport, the visitor should go to the Bus Station (Estación de Guaguas) in Las Palmas and either take a number 303 bus to San Mateo from where the buses go out number 305 bus towards Tejeda and the number 18 bus that the distance covers San Mateo - Tejeda - San Bartolomé de Tirajana - Faro de Maspalomas.

Culture and art are present in Tejeda as additional options to tourism and leisure activities. Visitors may visit the Abraham Cárdenes Sculpture Museum where they can admire part of the important Canarian sculptor’s work. Abraham Cárdenes was born in Tejeda and was always a great admirer of his homeland. There is also an Ethnographic Museum, which allows the visitor to take a tour through the history of the municipality and of Gran Canaria. There will also be a Medicinal Plants Centre, where the visitor can discover the variety of plants, herbs and flowers which are autochthonous to Tejeda and the island. Besides you will be able to see the different uses these have in medicine, cosmetics and religion.

Tejeda is a must for those who wish to discover the rich archaeological wealth of the island. Archaeological remains such as burial caves, rock carvings, paintings and houses are found in this area. Roque Bentayga offers an excellent example. It is an outstanding natural element which was a sacred place for the native people. It was here that they gave offerings and prayed to their gods. The Cuevas del Rey are located inside the Roque Bentayga, where the visitor can see caves that were used as rooms and granaries, rock carvings, cave paintings and numerous perforations carried out in the rock demonstrating the existence of a pre Hispanic religious centre.

The Bentayga Archaeological Park is an eco-museum situated beside Roque Bentayga offering information
