Description:
La Fortaleza and in the background the Fortaleza Grande are two very prominent rocky fortresses located within the Barranco (canyon) de Tirajana located in the south of Gran Canaria. They are composed of layer upon layer of lava flows deposited between some 14.2 and 2.5 million years ago and which would have successively filled series of ancient canyons. Later, within the last 2 million years or so, water has eroded the rocks to each side of these lava flows to form new canyons, allowing these formations to take their shape as seen today. The Fortaleza Grande in the back ground contains some caves in which it is said that the last of the ancestral primitive inhabitants of Gran Canaria, the Guanche people, took refuge, during the final battles to conquer the Island by the Spanish.
