The municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana has a surface of 33,500 Hectares. (335 Km2). It is shaped in the form of a triangle, its vertex located inland, at 1,900 metres, and its broad base coincides with the southern limit of Gran Canaria. It is the municipality with the largest area on the island, covering one fifth of its surface, i.e., exactly 21.86%. Because of its size, it holds some of the larger units of relief on Gran Canaria.
The capital city of the municipality, San Bartolomé, whose indigenous name was formerly Tunte, is located in what has historically been known as “La Caldera de Las Tirajanas”.
The greater part of the area comprises the southern slope of the great phonolythic volcano, of which only the southern and western slopes remain, and which in earlier days covered the whole island.
The only recent volcanic activity has come from two small emission centres, located almost in the sedimentary plain. Because it is a territory consisting of ancient materials, where volcanic activity in recent times has been scarce, what predominates are forms caused by erosion, ending in the southernmost part, the Dunes of Maspalomas
