The northern part of Gran Canaria was covered in a spectacular forest at the time of Spanish conquest (15th century). All that's left today are two redoubts, the Finca de Osorio (in Teror) and the Tilos de Moya. It's said that it was here that the Pre-Hispanic chief, Doramas, took refuge after attacking the Castilian conquerors, which is why it's also known as Selva de Doramas (Doramas' Wood). Despite the fact that the characteristic monteverde vegetation is not as predominant as it once was, it's still worth visiting Los Tilos. These days, there are old caseríos (country-houses) between hills and cliffs, such as Azuaje, with its medicinal waters. Admission: free. For more information, contact City Hall at the above number.
