The Village of Vallehermoso and its basin were very important for centuries because they shelter a great amount of heritage and were the economic driving force of the island.

This area is also a place to live and enjoy a wide range of attractions and services as well as the beginning of dozens of trails that start and return to a place that is never completely known.
