Caldera de Tirajana, the natural jewel of Santa Lucía

The Caldera de Tirajana is the great natural jewel of the municipality of Santa Lucía, leaving us with breathtaking landscapes.

The south of Gran Canaria is much more than sun and beach. Here we can find natural landscapes worth mentioning, such as the impressive Caldera de Tirajana, capable of leaving us with bated breath when we turn our attention to its vertiginous cliffs.

This caldera can be found in the centre of Gran Canaria, facing southeast. It therefore belongs to the municipality of Santa Lucía de Tirajana, the third most populated on the island.

It is undoubtedly a natural region with a very unique landscape. Its rugged relief and an unparalleled wealth of vegetation make up an agricultural landscape. Obviously, depending on the time of year we visit, we will find it greener or with a more arid tone. 

It is also worth noting that the formation of the Caldera de Tirajana is of erosive origin. This is due to two factors: the weather conditions and the impermeable layers interspersed between the lava flows that can be found on the ground.

Likewise, and as the Santa Lucía de Tirajana Town Hall informs, a monolithic piton, the Risco Blanco, stands out inside this caldera. As for the flora to be found here, it is worth mentioning the Canary Island palm tree, the substitution scrub and the Canary Island pine.

If you’ve been bitten by the bug and want to explore for yourself this emblematic place of the natural heritage of the centre-south of Gran Canaria, we have the perfect experience for you. Entrées offers you the opportunity to see the Caldera de Tirajana, passing through the historic centre of the village of Santa Lucía.

You will also visit the ruins of La Fortaleza, an ancient place of worship that was used as an observatory of the celestial vault according to popular wisdom. And to top it all off, you can take a refreshing swim in a small beach of rock and black sand.

Make this experience your own!
