One of the prettiest towns in northeast Gran Canaria
From highlands covered by the island’s best preserved pine forest down to the clear Atlantic waters via a stunning, fertile valley and a pretty old town, the Agaete Valley in northwest Gran Canaria is one of the island’s prettiest spots. The town, with its whitewashed houses clinging the valley side, contains treasures such as 19th Century houses with interior patios, the Concepción church, and the wonderful walled Huerto de las Flores garden.
Fresh fish and archaeological sites
Before leaving the old town it’s worth visiting Gran Canaria’s most interesting archaeological site: The Maipés necropolis. You also can’t leave Agaete without visiting the seaside town of Puerto de las Nieves with its whitewashed houses with blue windows. This is Gran Canaria’s most popular spot for fresh fish right by the sea.
