Anden Verde

 Anden Verde 

Access to this gorge, today known as the Viewpoint and previously as the Seamen’s Pass, was gained along the dangerous steep cliffs by daring orchilleros, peasant shepherds who used to extract the valuable lichen (the raw material used in fabric dye) from the orchilla plant growing here; and especially, seamen who would make their way down through here to the coves and beaches in search of traditional fish and seafood. This is the ancient part of Gran Canaria; a volcanic island which emerged from the sea some 15-14.5 million years ago, and which, in over a million years, in the shape of a shield, advanced a few kilometres towards the sea.
