To be UNESCO or not to be UNESCO; that´s the question!
On the Canary Islands there are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The National Park El Teide on Tenerife definitely takes the lead. Gran Canaria currently has none, but the island has a rough diamond in its treasury and is anxious to have it cut and polished by UNESCO. This rough diamond is a pre-Spanish cave complex called Risco Caído. It is a real architectural and astronomical highlight that can only be reached on foot. Anyone who wants to visit Risco Caído in its pure state before the masses pour in, should definitely take a change NOW. The most beautiful trail leads across the reservoir of Los Pérez, through the misty Tamadaba forest. In Lugarejos, this same trail turns into a zigzagging, spectacular donkey path which leads to the hidden site.
