Free Tour of Telde (Gran Canaria) with official guide 🏛️
Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!
Imagining a tourist destination in Gran Canaria, not many visitors would think of Telde. It is the second city of the Island, the fourth of the archipelago and it appears to us more like an enclave of large productive and commercial estates.
The municipality is an obligatory point of passage for those traveling between the capital and the tourist areas in the south, as well as for those arriving by plane, since the Gran Canaria airport is located there. Even so, very few stop in this interesting city.
However, Telde preserves a historical complex of prime importance and great beauty, through which this route is developed, which aims to outline the profile of the Canarian identity. The Barranco Real de Telde , populated since pre-Hispanic times, preserves the traces left by generations of men and women for centuries. Due to its importance in the history of the island and due to the wealth of its archaeological, ethnographic and historical heritage in general, it is the ideal place to discover some of the features, institutions, traditions, as well as gastronomy, economic activities, landscape and territory that They define the Canarian culture.
The inhabitants of Tara and Cendro , two of the most famous aboriginal sites on the island, the Castilian noblemen who founded the San Juan neighborhood, the workers of the humble and picturesque San Francisco neighborhood, or the mysterious Inés Chemida, daughter of a noblewoman. Aboriginal and a Castilian captain, will be some of the characters that will ideally accompany us on the visit.
Only groups of up to 6 people are allowed in this activity. If you are 7 or more people, you will be asked for a payment per person in advance to join the visit.
