Historic Quarter of Ingenio

A town which grew with sugar cane
Located in the southeastern region of the island of Gran Canaria, the town of Ingenio evidences the achievements of the economic boom that agriculture brought to it in the XVI century. The growing of sugar cane made this progress possible for what was at that time a place dependent on its neighbouring town, Agüimes. Today the municipality boasts two historic quarters: the old quarter of Candelaria Square and the Carrizal neighbourhood with the church of Our Lady of Good Success (Buen Suceso).
Farm work among splendid natural spaces not to be missed
Shaped among water, farmhouses, farmland and cane fields, the town of Ingenio is defined by its proximity to three impressive natural monuments on the island of Gran Canaria: the ravines of Guayadeque and El Draguillo and the Natural Reserve of Caldera (Crater) de los Marteles. In the midst of the historic quarter there are several houses with traditional Canarian architecture as well as Néstor Alamo Park where we see the tallest palm tree in the Canary Islands, which is thirty metres high.

- 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.).
