The Tenefé salt mines have been working in Pozo Izquierdo since the 18th century. Some of the old mills have been conserved, contrasting with the wind turbines which now populate the area. The Sorrueda dam can be found in the Tirajana ravine where the surrounding environment has many ecological and botanical values. You'll be able to see some of the most beautiful and extensive palm groves on Gran Canaria.
In Santa Lucia de Tirajana you can enjoy the nature and walk along the various trails, like to the fortress or the church. It's a very quaint, small and quiet village. The city of Las Palmas is 30 minutes away by car and there you can have fun getting lost around the most characteristical places like the Vegueta, Triana, Ciudad Jardín and the port.
