A walk round the traditional agriculture of the island to become familiar with their most characteristic cultivation.
Gran Canaria in-depth.
The mixture and diversity that shaped the Gran Canarian cultural identity find their biggest and best representation in this centre. There are more than 4000 m² divided into twelve rooms around two beautiful buildings made of stone and wood that guard one of the island's secrets: we're talking about the Santa Lucía de Tirajana area, which is an important agricultural area in the southeast of the island. Throughout the rooms of the Museo de la Zafra, it's possible to observe the main processes and materials that have given shape to the agriculture and stockbreeding in Gran Canaria, paying particular attention to the cultivation of the tomato and the water culture, which are essential in island farming. The museum has a plot of land on which different crops such as bananas, sugar cane, and prickly pears are exhibited in a demonstrative way. It's also worth mentioning the original 85-metre deep well which is still preserved with its machinery.
