This was our first foray into the mountainous roads of Gran Canaria and it soon assured us that driving in the interior of the island is not for the faint hearted. The views are, as you can see, spectacular. The roads are equally.. interesting.
They are well made, but have to navigate seriously steep-sided mountains. They do this by being a series of hairpin bends. The added interest comes from the innumerable groups of cyclists who also love the scenery, but who can keep car drivers at bay for miles upon miles, until you find a patch of road where you dare over take. So.. sit back.. chill enjoy the view. As you can see, it's worth it.
Many of the rocks in this area have a vivid green colour, presumably copper?
We didn't actually make the trip al the way to Veneguera itself, but stopped instead by an interesting roadside shop, which sold us a selection of interesting nuts, fruits and ice cream.
