Firgas, a small town famous for its production of sparkling mineral water, which is drawn from a spring in Barranco de las Madres, around 4 km (about 2.5 miles) away. Filling over 200,000 bottles a day, this tasty water is very popular throughout the islands.
This pleasant little town, which celebrated its 500th anniversary in 1988, features the Paseos de Canaria and de Gran Canaria, where a man-made waterfall cascades 30 metres (about 100 ft) down shallow steps in the centre of pedestrian passages laid out in 1995. On the backrests of benches at the walls of bordering houses you can see beautifully painted landscapes and historic symbols of the seven Canary Islands.
Follow this diverting promenade to reach Firgas’ Casa de la Cultura and a neighbouring square housing both the Town Hall and the Iglesia San Roque where young and old meet at any time of the day.
