Tejeda is the home of the Nublo rock, the symbol of Gran Canary.

The district of Tejeda is in the centre of the island of Gran Canary. The Tejeda depression arose from a volcanic crater, standing over which is a mountain crowned by several rocky promontories, such as the Nublo rock, an enormous chunk of basalt which is the symbol of Gran Canary, and the Bentayga rock, where you will find the Caves of the King, a sacred site in pre-Hispanic times which contains cave paintings.

The landscape of the area features forests of Canary Islands pine and almond trees.
