Pueblo de Mogán is a small town about 5 miles up from the Puerto de Mogán resort. There is a church, a landscaped park and some local government offices there.
Local fiestas and concerts sometimes take place in Pueblo de Mogán and there are some nice restaurants there, where you can try Canarian cooking. Some of the bars serve tapas so if you fancy a snack rather than a big meal you can get something there.
You can also buy hand-made pottery or paintings by local artists in some of the restaurants and bars.
Just outside Pueblo de Mogan is a village of Molino Quemado (literally “burnt windmill”). The story goes that the tallest windmill on the island was burnt down by a local goatherd who had a grievance of some kind against the authorities.
If you are going to rent a car in Gran Canaria, Pueblo de Mogán is worth a visit. Alternatively you can get a ferry from Puerto Escala and then a bus or taxi for a few euros. There is the new Monday art market in Mogan or the Friday Mogan market which you might like to have a look at too.
