Welcome to Valle Gran Rey
Before you descend into the valley, you could stop at the Ermita del Santo in Arure, where a tiny chapel is built into the rock face and is surrounded by a mirador showing off the southern landscape.
Also worth a stop, the Mirador César Manrique enjoys incredible views of Valle Gran Rey’s gorge and the mountains that loom around it. The restaurant serves average, rather than exceptional, Canarian dishes and is popular with coach tour groups.
A few kilometres further on is another of the area’s many road-side chapels: the best feature of the Ermita de San Antonio is the view from the plaza outside.
