Villa de Agüimes in Gran Canaria

The Villa of Agüimes is located in the southeast of Gran Canaria and is one of the most charming villages on the island. It is a place that breathes history, due, among other things, to its traditional architecture, its popular folklore and handicrafts as well as its aboriginal sites.
 
This municipality covers a great area, from the top of the mountain where the farmhouse of Temisas is, to the fishing village of Arinaga. Villa de Agüimes is about 25 minutes’ drive from our hotels in the south of Gran Canaria.

When you come on holidays to Dunas Hotels & Resorts in Gran Canaria and you plan visits around the island to know more about its history and traditions, Villa de Agüimes will definitely be a must visit. Here, there are places that will tell you about its olden days, i.e.: El Morro del Cuervo, its Religious art, the Parish Temple of San Sebastián or the Hermitage of Temisas.
 
The Villa of Agüimes offers different types of plans to enjoy in a day or a whole weekend trip. A walk through its historical centre is mandatory. You will breathe the history that emanates from its traditional houses and its cobbled streets.
 
The Parish Church of San Sebastián is one of the buildings that draws the attention of those who visit Villa de Agüimes. It is such characteristic construction that has become the image of this town. It is truly a must visit. It was built as cathedral and its facade is a sample of the Canarian neoclassicism architecture. It is a National Artistic Historical Monument and it is one of the many reasons why the residents of the Villa de Agüimes are proud of their town.
 
If you are eager to visit the inland side of Villa de Agüimes you won’t be disappointed at all. The stunning beauty of the Natural Monument of Guayadeque amazes every visitor. This hundred meters’ deep ravine makes it one of the places of greatest archaeological interest in Gran Canaria. Its aboriginal constructions, the Caves of Guayadeque, as well as the rich endemic flora and fauna also add much interest to the sight.
 
Temisas is another special corner that you’ll definitely be happy to see when visiting Villa de Agüimes. Its mountain landscape together with the hamlet recreate a beautiful scenery that will be forever engraved in your retina.
 
If on the contrary, what you’d like to enjoy is the coastal area of Agüimes, we suggest you to discover the sea bottom of Playa de Cabrón or Las Salinas. It is a magical place, not only for its beauty, but because the art of fishing is one of the historical craft activities of all those who have lived on this coast, from the olden to the present days.
