When you year after year travel on holiday to Gran Canaria, it's offen the same holiday offers you meet every time, restaurants, activities and beach, but have you ever thought of how it all started...
There are about 5 million tourists traveling to the island each year, but only the few people know how it all started, how the first people lived, how they were doing everyday and tools they had.
All these questions can be answered at Mundo Aborigen, which is a faithful copy of how the first people on the islands lived. On a 110,000 sqkm freelands museum on the way to Fataga, you can walk around in such a village. It has over 100 figures of natural size and there are a lot of small houses that show the daily life of these small, busy people.
There is also a demonstration of how the shepherd used long sticks to get down the mountainsides.
They also have animals and they are quite harmless.
You can walk around the park on your own but be aware because it is’n an easy walk and some plases can be quite hard for walking.
In connection with the park, there is also a small museum that you shouldn’t miss. From the park there is a great view of Playa del Ingles and t is possible to buy a small refreshment in the cafeteria.
Mundo Aborigen is open 9 AM to 6 PM and it is on the way to Fataga, about 6 Km, from San Fernando.
