Little Venice

Things to do in Puerto de Mogán Gran Canaria
Bougainvillea-covered Arches

The small colorful houses in the harbor area have always given Puerto de Mogan its special charm and earned it the nickname "Little Venice". The picturesque streets are lined with colorful flowerbeds; you stroll through bougainvillea-covered arches and take small bridge to cross the canals. This environment offers countless great photo opportunities. Many small, cozy coffee-shops invite you to linger and enjoy.

Archaeological Site

Cañada de los Gatos - an ancient Canarian settlement is very well preserved and can be visited. The indigenous people of Gran Canaria "Guanches”, were settled here before the Spanish conquest. The age of the finds is dated to 1300 years. The facility is open from 10:00 - 17: 00h. The entrance fee is 4€.

A little further up in the same street of the "Cañada de los Gatos" you will also find the well-preserved remains of the outer wall of a Guanche dwelling in the front yard of a residential building. The site is clearly visible from the outside through a grid and you will receive some interesting information about the find on various information boards.

The Church

The Small Village Church

The small village church "Ermita de San Fernando", built in 1935, joins in an alley in the second row from the beach in the midst of the lively activity around the beach walk. It is barely recognizable from the outside in an inconspicuous building on the corner of "Paseo de los Pescadores ". It is great example for a typical Canarian village church. The church can be visited on Sundays during met.

Old Town - Fishing Village

This is the authentic Puerto de Mogen. This part of the village is still quite Canarian except for a few smaller pensions. There is a lot to discover in the winding little streets of the old town, which meander up the mountain. In this part you can experience the everyday life of the resident fishing families up close.

The Viewpoint

View From the Vantage Point to the Old Town

The viewpoint "Mirador" in the old town center is well signposted. The viewing platform can be reached via countless, steep steps through the narrow streets of the quaint old town. The strenuous ascent is rewarded with a beautiful view of the pretty village, the beach and its harbor. The climb is worthwhile during the day and also in the evening, when the colorful village lights are reflected in the harbor basin.

The Caves

Experienced swimmers and adventurous people can explore countless caves in the steep cliffs in a westerly direction. Equipped with snorkel and mask, you can watch the many colorful fish and octopuses in the rocky outcrops.

A comparatively small beach with magnificent surrounding. In the background there is the imposing mountain scenery, which extends into the interior and in the front there is the lovely view of the picturesque harbor area. The sand is golden and the water is always calm. Great for swimming with kids.

Sunset

Just in time for the sunset you meet the rocks at the end of the village, next to the fishing port. From this bay you have a spectacular view of the colorful Canary sunsets. The sun really offers impressive natural spectacles as it seems to sink into the ocean. In the distance you can see a few boats and the seagulls gliding away in the evening sun.

Fresh Fish

Fish lovers should not miss a meal of freshly caught Atlantic fish. In the harbor restaurant of the fishing cooperative "Cofradia" this is prepared in a typical Canary way: You will also get the small Canarian potatoes with the spicy garlic sauce "Mojo" and some “Alioili”.
