The town of Tejeda lies in the very heart of the Canary Island of Gran Canaria, at the bottom of a sunken crater. The town is lined with high rocks and has a breathtaking view of amazing natural scenery. There is a picturesque landscape all around, which is tempting to explore.

Center

The center of the town is the local church Nuestra Señora del Socorro. Around it there are then historical streets and thus the most picturesque part of Tejeda.

Local products

Tejeda is known mainly for its specific almond delicacies. Due to the fact that it is an inland town, the temperatures are again much higher than on the coast. For this reason, it is possible to see thermophilic crops such as figs, limes and, of course, almonds. Bananas are also widely grown in Gran Canaria.

As Tejeda is not the primary tourist destination, it is truly an oasis of calm. The local streets are just waiting to be explored.
