Molino De Fuego (Mill where they make Gofio)
Gofio is one of the most ancestral foods of the Canary Islands since its origin goes back hundreds of years ago. Currently, it continues to be the food base of the Canaries, although its reputation has been revalued; especially since 1994, when the Designation of Origin was granted. It is a roasted cereal flour that is presented in many dishes and that you can include in your recipe book today.
History and tradition, the gofio was brought to the Canary Islands by its ancient inhabitants and that was centuries ago. Since then it has been part of their most basic food and came to Latin America from the hand of the Canarian emigrants. Thanks to that, today it is part of the Venezuelan, Uruguayan and Brazilian gastronomy. It started as roasted barley flour, but nowadays we find it of different types; of wheat, of millet or corn, of cosco, of beans and rye.
It comes from a roasting and grinding process. Formerly they were elaborated manually, with the help of some stones destined to this work; the millstone. Today, electric mills are responsible for their production although, in some areas, old water mills are still preserved.

Cactualdea Park (Cactus Park)
As its name suggests, Cactualdea shows to the visitor a great variety of cactus. There are about 1,200 different species of cactuses, some brought from some remote places such as Madagascar, Bolivia and Guatemala. There are dragoes, palm trees and aloes. This park also contains a model of a Guanche Cave. Our park also has a beautiful restaurant where you can choose between typical Canarian dishes or a selection of it´s international dishes. All is designed for you to relax besides having the possibility of going for a walk and visiting it´s animals and birds, which includes peacocks and donkeys among them.
Six metres, this is what the tallest cactus in Cactualdea measures and it is undoubtedly the star of the best photos in this incredible garden. When you go into this, the largest cactus park in Europe, you will be amazed by the huge size of many of the species of the more than 1,200 to be found here.
Cactualdea offers a lot more that just spiny plants, brought from exotic places like Madagascar. Amidst babbling water and just past the amphitheatre, the eruption of an artificial volcano leads to steps taking us to the beautiful garden. A long stone path around the cactarium allows us to discover more and more cacti surrounded by palm trees, aloe vera and Canary Island Spurge. Under the unworried attention of peacocks, ducks, tortoises and donkeys, all of which are oblivious to everything and just doing their own thing. Visiting the cave, having some tapas in the outdoor bar and buying souvenirs are all activities to be enjoyed.
Make sure to try the red cactus juice made from the Prickly pear’ cactus plant it makes for a refreshing drink. We also ate “Canarian wrinkly potatoes Papas arrugadas which is a traditional boiled potato dish eaten in the Canary Islands and is usually served with a chili pepper garlic sauce, called mojo rojo, or as an accompaniment to meat dishes.
