Parador de Cruz de Tejeda

Can you imagine yourself in a natural paradise in the heart of Gran Canaria Island, with a spa and a swimming pool that extends towards a pine wood? That place exists.

History

Can you imagine yourself in a natural paradise in the heart of Gran Canaria Island, with a spa and a swimming pool that extends towards a pine wood? That place exists. It is a lovely spot with views of cliffs and ravines overlooking the ocean, atop which the Parador de Cruz de Tejeda stands.

The hotel is located 35 kilometers from Gran Canaria, surrounded by nature at more than 1,500 meters above sea level, where the majority of the ancient king’s highways continue to bear witness to the footprints left by hikers. Our guest rooms will be a dream come true, offering a view of the immense caldera that emerges in all its glory, carved out by water and sunken by volcanoes.

The town of Tejeda is just 9 kilometers away and is a must-see if you want to explore the island’s archaeological heritage. There you will find vestiges of cave burials, paintings and houses. You can also visit Bentayga Archaeological Park, an ecomuseum that acts as an interpretive center for the archaeological complex that includes Bentayga, Andén de Tabacalete, Cuevas del Rey and El Roquete.

Culture and art are the perfect complement to tourism and leisure in Tejeda. You can visit the Abraham Cárdenes Sculpture Museum and admire some of the work of this important Canary Islands sculptor, who was originally from Tejeda and a lover of his homeland. Another interesting option is the Medicinal Plant Center, which invites you to discover the plant, herb and flower varieties native to Tejeda and the island.

The Parador de Cruz de Tejeda awaits you, located in a glorious spot from which you can explore the lovely island of Gran Canaria, considered by many to be a continent in miniature because of the variety of beautiful landscapes it is home to.
