Valle de San Roque

The neighborhood of Valle de San Roque, located northeast of the municipality, is found at a distance of 5 kilometers from the Valsequillo urban center. There is an important wealth of medicinal-mineral water to be found in the subsoil, which until recent dates had been exploited by means of a bottling industry.
The neighborhood’s historical tradition is very highly linked to San Roque’s Patron Saint, to whom one of the most important festivities to take place in the municipality is dedicated in the month of August. Due to its proximity with the municipality’s boundary it was said of the chapel that serves as his refuge, “that the Parish Priest clothed himself in Telde and held mass in Valsequillo”.
Without a doubt one of the neighborhood’s greatest attractions is the ancient palm grove of Phoenix Canariensis that carpets the Valley.
This neighborhood also counts with a school, social club, town square, park and sports arena.
