Neighborhood: Telde
Overview

Located at the peak of the so-called Bermeja mountain, this archeological site strongly reflects the close relationship between the Prehispanic Canary Islanders and their religious beliefs. It's formed by a room with four large doors, hence the name (cuatro puertas means "four doors"), all dug out of volanic rock. However, above them is a proper altar directly related to solar rites. Behind, the spectacular caves of Los Papeles and Las Solumnas complete the site and give you an unbeatable view of the Roque de Gando and the southeast of Gran Canaria. For more information, call the Tourism Office at the above number. Admission is free.
