Things to do

In "La Vega de San Mateo", you will find several protected areas, such as "Camaretas" and "Hoya de Gamonal" that you should definitely visit. Important are also "Los Pozos de las Nieves" (the highest point of the island) and the glen’s route "La Mina" (water runs all year-round through this glen and you can find traces of laurel forest vegetation and of original water mills). In the centre of the town a visit of the agricultural market is a must (here small farmers sale directly their products, but only on Saturdays and Sundays). The local church, the "Molino de gofio" (typical, Canarian corn flour) and the ethnographic museum "Cho Limones" where you can see traditional objects and tools belonging to rural areas, are also worth seeing.
