The Gran Canaria region
Gran Canaria, really Grand Canary (archaic), is the third largest island of the Canary Islands, an archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean 210 km from the north-west coast of Africa and belonging to Spain. It is located south-east of Tenerife and west of Fuerteventura. The island is of volcanic origin.
The island was populated by the Guanches, who may have arrived as early as 500 BC. The Guanches called the island Tamaràn. It was claimed by Spain in the 15th century.
Gran Canaria's surface is 1,560 km2 and its maximum altitude is 1,949 metres (Pico de Las Nieves). It has a round shape, having a diametre of just about 50 km.
The Tauro / Pueblo de Tauro area
The pueblo (Small village) of Tauro, up to 5 years ago was a sleepy backwater totally unlike the more busy resort of Puerto Rico, which is around 3 kms away.
One of the major changes in the valley of Tauro is a new 18 - hole PGA Championship Golf Course. There is also a beautiful, yet demanding 9-Hole par 3 golf course with an adjacent excellent driving range. Golf lessons are available if required. Tauro still maintains its unique tranquillity that is so much enjoyed by very many people, but is still close to local beaches and resorts. (Tauro to Puerto Rico by taxi - €4).
