San Bartolome de Tirajana is small Historic town in the Southern inland town in Gran Canaria. It is the town that has the administrative centre for the majority of the southern coastal region, including the resorts Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas. the region is also known for its plantations of almonds, plums, peaches and cherries, which are used in the production of vodkas and liqueurs, in particular for the towns specialties Guindilla, which is a cherry liqueur and Mejunje, a sweet concoction of honey, rum and lemon. In this area you will find many of the ancient aboriginal tracks, royal paths - Caminos Reales. Once these old tracks were the only means to get around the centre of the island. Many of them have been restored and reopened to walkers and hikers, in the last years to promote conservation-conscious tourism.
