‪Really pleased we found about about this small archeological site on-line.

For us who like history it was worth the couple of hours distraction just to learn a little and get a lovely view up high.

Cheap to enter. Probably a bit of an effort to take most kids and definitely not for those with mobility issues.

Thr only shame was the cafe was closed - presume it opens when the season is in full swing.

It is situated close to the Churrreria plaza area, up the same road as the Muelle Vieja apartments - the cemetary is alongside Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa.

The easiest way to find it is walk along the beach promenade to the last bar Mogan Mar, go up past Muelle Vieja apartments and it is about 2 minutes up the same toad.‬

‪Fascinating archeological site dating back to the Canary Islands before the Spanish colonisation. Each of the ruined buildings and graves has descriptions in English Spanish and German. Pleasurable couple of hours walking around the ruins in the sunshine as well as stunning views of the port.‬

‪This interesting archeological site with its main entrance on C. la Puntilla, a short walk from the beach in Puerto de Mogan is well worth the 4 Euros entrance fee.
Plenty of interesting multi language information boards throughout the site, but I agree with other reviewers that a few of these are in need of a bit of repair as the photos they show have become bleached out.
Also post Covid lockdown the cafe referred to seems to have lunch time opening only, if it is open at all. On the two afternoon occasions I took a walk here I never found it open. Take your own liquids as the site is west facing and in the glare of the sun, but does give great views over Puerto de Mogan especially from the cafe terrace. For my second visit I took my own beer and enjoyed it on the cafe terrace whilst watching the sun set to the west.
The path from the main archeological section that goes north is an interesting walk, but you will not be able to guarantee exit this way unless you are a guest at the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel as the exit is into the hotel ( it’s their own entrance to the site) and key controlled. However…I didn’t tell you this , but the gate is not always closed , so if you want to take a chance you could walk this way and see if you can sneak into the hotel where, turning right will take you to reception and out to the building laughing called the Plaza Mogan shopping centre, or turning left will take you past the main swimming pool and then to a south west corner gate which will bring you out to a side road a short walk up some steps back up to C. la Puntilla and the main site entrance.
For those who like longer walks the GC500 road between Mogan and Taurito remains closed and is a good cycling, walking path that also affords excellent views and gives you a birds eye view of the archeological site, but obviously without the detailed information.‬

‪We struggled to gain entrance to this historic site which was a pity. We read information about it and it sounded very interesting and full of history.

It seemed to be closed when we went though!

Not to be put off, we went the long way round. Walk out of town near the football ground and then up the hill you will get some exercise and eventually be able to lock down on the site which was interesting from what we could see.‬

‪I was reading Sapiens during my trip so visiting this museum makes it all relevant.
Student ticket was only 2 euros so I got a good deal here.

The site is so close to the beach and the bus station so if you take a trip to Puerto de Mogan, this is another activity you can consider.

It is not a massive area so we managed to read and check out everything in 2 hours. The presentation was really interesting and took us on a time-travel trip of the island's history.‬

‪If you are in Mogan for more than the beach and harbourside this makes a fascinating distraction.
Located just s couple of minutes from the bus depot and 5 mins from harbour it offers an onsite in the pre Hispanic culture and life of the area. Just €4 to enter you can see different ways the area of used by earlier inhabitants, the changing style of homes etc.
It is true that some of the descriptions at places could do with some TLC. At times pictures showing you what you could see at different spots were not always totally obvious but it didn't lessen the walk.
The site meanders up the valley and at its top end there is a wonderful little bar / cafe cut into the rock face to shelter from the sun and get wonderful views across the area. Continue walking and you wonder along the side of the valet ending in what is an old Cemetery and where caves were used as tombs. It is really something different.‬

‪Well worth a visit and very cheap (€4 for seniors). The entrance does not hint at the large area of land which the ste covers on the side of the hill above the port town. The remains of the buildings which once existed are spread out along the side of the valley and the route takes you along a gently rising slope. Each excavated remains have a short description and a plan.
Whilst well worth a vist, the descriptions could be improved, whilst audio guides would be an worthwhile addition.‬

‪I visited the Archaeological site back in 2017 and was very impressed, commenting that it was 4 euros well spent. I was looking forward to revisiting and immersing myself once again in the fascination of pre-Hispanic Gran Canaria.
The site is still great value and I was pleased to see a few more people visiting, including families with children. It is quite a small achaeological site so is easily seen within and hour; however, it does get very hot so worth taking water, especially if you are with children. My only disappointment is that several of the information boards have become unreadable due to heat damage, or have come away from their backing.
On this visit, the little cafe belonging to the Hotel Cordial was open allowing for a refreshing drink and a beautiful panorama. The bar worker was really quite informative about the history of Mogan from the 1960s which was interesting.‬

‪Cañada de los Gatos are ruins of a pre-hispanic town located in Puerto de Mogán, a turistical town in the South part of Gran Canaria Island. In fact, the houses, you can see,were inhabitated until 20th Century by people, who live in the region. Now only you can see the walls of them. Near here, there is a pre-hispanic necropolis, which is close to some hotels. From here, you can see very beautiful views of the ocean and the town. Nice.

‪Reading negative reviews is often as informative as reading the positive ones, and very regularly the latter make me laugh. It may sound obvious, but if you're not interested in archeology, then don't visit Cañada de los Gatos! You'll just be disappointed and say it is 'nothing special'. If however you are prepared to read the very informative signs, have a good look around and use your imagination, you'll find it fascinating to find out how ancient people used to live in what we now call Puerto de Mogãn. ‬
