Anzor de Galda, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands
Anzor de Galda
A busy town situated on the north of the island which is an ideal base for exploring archaeological sites and is also within easy access of Las Palmas. For a spot of island hopping, Puerto de Las Nieves is nearby with regular sailings to Santa Cruz, Tenerife.
Experience authentic daily life in the busy working town of Galdar and take the opportunity to explore the surrounding countryside and secluded beaches and coves of the north coast.
Things to Do
In the city centre you can relax in the Plaza Grande under the shade of centuries old trees, see the beautiful church, Iglesia de Santiago de Galdar and visit the adjoining museum. Stroll through the narrow streets to see the artworks at the Museo de Antonio Padron and, for cultural heritage, a guided tour of the museum and archaeological site at the Cueva Pintada (the painted cave) is a must.
Outside of the town, another archaeological site of interest is the 11th century burial site of the Guanches at Tumulo de la Guanche (2km).
Out and About
For scenic walking, head inland to Los Pinos de Galdar and admire spectacular views over the coast from the Pinos de Galdar Crater.
In the nearby Valley of Agaete you can explore the traditional town of Agaete (10km), visit the Museo de la Rama or explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and traditional mountain villages that border the Tamadaba National Park.
On the north west coast you can visit the working fishing village of Sardina (5km); watch the colourful fishing boats and the fishermen at work, dine at one of the fresh fish restaurants around the harbour or relax on the dark sandy beaches. The sheltered bay and clear calm waters at Sardina del Norte are popular with divers and there is a scuba diving school.
On the north coast (5km) you can relax and swim at the small sandy coves of Playa de los Dos Roques and Punta de Galdar, go diving and explore the underwater caves at Caleta de Arriva and Caleta de Abajo or go surfing at El Agujero. The capital of Las Palmas is approx 27km.
