Vega de San Mateo lets you escape to the peace and quiet of the countryside while still being surrounded by major sights. Between the delicious food, historical sites, and festivals in town, our Vega de San Mateo vacation rentals are the perfect home base for a fun-filled getaway.
Where is Vega de San Mateo?
Vega de San Mateo lies in northeast Gran Canaria, the southernmost island of the Canary Island archipelago.
The village enjoys serene surroundings thanks to its countryside location but is still only 15 miles from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. When you're not making trips to the city, you can hike up to the Mirador Natural de la Cruz y El Montañón. After the sun sets, admire the breathtaking night sky at the Centro Astronómico Roque Saucill observatory.
Things to Do in Vega de San Mateo
Our Vega de San Mateo vacation rentals offer a relaxing Canarian atmosphere without the crowds of larger cities. Indulge in delicious food, explore the architecture of old town, or shop at the Sunday Agriculture and Craft Market.
Of course, it wouldn't be a quintessential Spanish town
if things didn't get a little exciting thanks to a few local festivals! Luckily, there's at least one each season. Whether you'd prefer the wintertime fireworks of Nuestra Señora de Lourdes or the summer livestock festival of the Nuestra Señora de Santa Ana, you'll have an exciting event waiting for you.
