Mother Nature painted Agaete valley in green. The indigenous people of Gran Canaria chose this area to settle down. They used to pass through this path which turned in the 14th century into a “Camino Real” (Royal Road). Until the middle of the 20th century it was used by female fishmongers from Agaete to sell their marine products or to trade them for potatoes or vegetables. Some neighbours of the area used to mill gofio in El Sao mill and stoked up on pine needle and firewood.
Along this Trade Route you can follow the footprints of those who used to live in El Hornillo caves and to contemplate the wild ocean of the northern part of the island and the beauty of the valley. You will also visit La Presa de los Pérez, Barranco Hondo, a group of country houses declared in 1993 Bien de Interés Cultural (Good of Cultural Interest) with Fátima Hermitage, built inside a cave by the neighbours. Discover this area blessed by Mother Nature before the Spanish conquerors arrived.
