We tried to visit this park last year but was closed then because of mudslides caused by heavy rainfall, we now understand why. La Zarza is a very beautiful park. We had an 8 km hike with very steep parts which we now understand can...More

The museum presentation is a little tired and out of date in it's style compared to other's on the island. However, the short walk up to the sites themselves more than makes up for it. Fascinating rock carvings than no one has been able to...More

Very small information centre, but told you lots about the Gaunches and their lifestyle. A short walk takes you to see the rock carvings which I found interesting. Well worth a visit if you're interested in the history of the island.

A good shortish visit. We enjoyed the video which gave some history about the island as well as explaining the rock markings. The markings are, themselves, worth a diversion to see. The valley is very atmospheric - or, it was when we were there in...More
