You can get delicious cheese here, as well as almonds and strawberries. Do you like wine? If so, you ought to try Vansequillo wine. Why not visit on a Sunday and check out the produce at the Sunday market?

You can get the number 43 bus from Telde.

What to See

Visit the San Miguel church or check out the quotidian sculptures. You can get fantastic views from the Mirador del Helelchal and there are strawberry fields as far as you can see too. This lively town is vibrant and interesting all through the year, especially when the Fiesta del Almendro en Flor is on in February. This is when the almond trees blossom. The Fiesta del Caballo is also good.

This village is named after an old sugarcane-pressing machine and you can see the ruins of it today. Check out the Museo de Piedra while you’re in Valsequillo de Gran Canaria – that’s the stone museum.

Where to stay in Valsequillo

There are not a lot of places to stay in this small village but there is one luxury “cottage” (more of a villa really) on the edge of the village but it is heavily booked despite the 700 euro/week fee!  I guess that shows people like it.
