Agaete

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.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the different items of public furniture (information panels, railings, seats, lighting, etc.).
