Excursion to the Dams of Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria has about 167 dams. It is thanks to the «1930 Hydraulic Works Plan» where the survival method is created through the creation of dams, wells, galleries ... The first dam was completed in 1910, the Pinto dam in Arucas, it is from here that the hydrological infrastructure of Gran Canaria is born.
