Gran Canaria - Roque Nublo

The Roque Nublo has always been a focal point for Canarian pilgrims, and is a profound sentimental manifestation of those who belong to this island’s deep-rooted culture. The Roque Nublo also represents a goal for numerous mountaineers since a German team climbed its summit for the first time back in 1932.

 

It is also surrounded by the Nublo Rural Park, and has been singled out as a Natural Monument.

 

The surrounding vegetation is a recently replanted pine wood which sits alongside brush and scrubland typical of the Grancanarian peaks, such as scotch broom and sage.

 

This whole area forms part of the World Reserve of the Gran Canaria Biosphere, as declared by UNESCO on 29th June 2005.
