“Desde esta vertiente se observa la Caldera de los Marteles, con menos de 1.000.000 de años de antigüedad. En realidad, su fisonomía, con unos 80 m. de profundidad y 550 m. de diámetro aproximados , responde al hundimiento de la superficie, provocado por el vaciado volcánico de la cámara magmática que había en profundidad. ”

“El escultor José Luján Pérez es, sin duda, el artista guiense de mayor proyección. Una de sus obras es el Cristo atado a la Columna de la iglesia parroquial de Santa María de Guía. Del resto de su obra en la iglesia de su municipio natal destacamos la Dolorosa, la Virgen de Las Mercedes, tallada en 1802, con su ropaje blanco,”

Library
“24 Hour study area and WIFI access for those with a Library Card who sign up. Can get a Library Card with your passport for free. Sadly you still must return your book to the library you borrowed it from. Not quite Holland yet where they even have a public library after airport security and have clean water fountains. Speaking of clean water fountains see our guide further to sadly find the only public one on the island ”

“One of the ONLY FREE PUBLIC WATER FOUNTAINS on Gran Canaria is just around the corner from this lovely library that is worth taking a look in. Blink and you will miss the fountain that has ZERO for signage. It is SAD that it is almost 2020 and Gran Canaria has nothing for public water infrastructure in place. For the amount of renewable energy they capture and waste daily as they lack something to energize they could be desalinating and pumping clean water back into lakes, rivers streams everywhere. This island was once a lush natural paradise before the race to the Americas cut near every tree from the island. Please make the trek here and spread the word to call out Gran Canaria to do better. You help is appreciated as those of us who live here and those who visit would benefit greatly. ”
