Gran Canaria: the way from Fataga to the Roque Nublo

View from our hotel on the water mill and on Fataga. Fataga lies on the road connecting Las Palomas with the middle of the island.


A very peculiar water mill : an aquaduct brings water to a toren where a spiral makes the mill working.




The path to the mill is a bit overgrown but still of use, the old cactusses have trunks resembling trees


We did find our hotel in Playa del Inglés unenjoyable and moved quickly to a little hotel near the watermill (Finca Molino de Agua):
restauratede old houses in a green palm tree bush, with an ideal climate, a true paradise in an unbelievable rest.
Morning mood.


Several nice little gardens between the houses, here a flourishing cactus


View on Fataga

Climbing the Roque Nublo




Roque Nublo: these are not caves, the sharp edges reveal earlier lava channels




Roque Nublo: this place is regarded by the island inhabitants as the real centre of Gran Canaria
