Fataga is a delightful little village, about half an hourŐs drive away from the southern coast, on the way up into the mountains. The area is known as the Valley of a Thousand Palms and further down this valley, you can take a camel ride at the Barranco de Fataga.
Fataga is beautiful. A mixture of whitewashed cottages, a few, small gift and craft shops and a lovely little church, all perch on the mountainside.
We stopped here for one of the best coffees on the island, served by the happiest woman, who sang on her way to serving us and charged us a pittance. We sat on the balcony, at the back of her restaurant in the sun, gazing at a dazzling panorama of mountain views.
You are viewing panorama No.48 (Fataga Church and Statue), one of 72 Virtual Reality 360 degree views of Gran Canaria.
