Very unusual, interesting and informative (without being overloaded with information) look into the Canarian past. Very reasonable entry fee(small kids free, teenagers half price). Some spectacular views of Puerto de Mogan from the site.

At the moment the GC-500 road between Mogan and Taurito is closed to traffic so every day you see walkers and cyclists using it.

The road walk provides a view down to the ruins, a much. Enter view than the Canada de los Gatos mirador and is of course free.

Although to be fair the 4 Euro charge for the ruins is unlikely to break the bank. The ruins aren’t spectacular by any means but it is worth preserving these things so if you do choose to go and support it then be aware they are closed on Monday.

Canada de los Gatos is an area of reasonably recently discovered archaeological ruins which is accessible either from the centre of Puerto de Mogan or from within the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel. The walk from the hotel is 20-30 minutes and offers good views across the town. There is a café in the site which is open for limited hours. Worth a visit of an hour or so if you are staying in the town.

It was nice to get the opportunity to see and do something different.
€4 to find out a little more about the people that lived on the island 1500 years ago as well as have a nice walk and take in some great views was Ok.
As others have said, there are quite a lot of information boards all translated into German and English which was useful. We did come unstuck after reaching the end with the burial ground site and seeing a 'no exit' door which led into a hotel, it seems the only way out is to walk back up the route you've just walked. A circular route would be better but it was a pleasant, if steep, walk and interesting enough.
It could be improved further if they created a map of the site, possibly summarising a bit of the known history of the indigenous people, how the site was discovered and highlighting the key things to see.

The area includes the excavated foundations of village dwellings, the earliest dating back to the indigenous Gouanche people of the Canary Islands. There is an interpretation panel at each excavated building in Spanish, German and English, which is essential given the low heights of the stone walls that remain. There's the bonus of the view, high above Puerto de Mogan with excellent views of the town and hotel areas.
