    The construction of the Agaete's Chapel de las Nieves was concluded in the second half of the 16th century by Francisco Palomares. This buiding is located in the Puerto de las Nieves, in a lightly populated fisherman's village. This chapel was their landmark. Their towers and an extension are masterpieces of last century, were being done during administration of D. Antonio de Armas. There is a Flemish triptych of the 16th century. It is a valuable masterpiece, The Triptych of Nuestra Sra. De las Nieves.

    Popular construction sponsored by Alonso Imperial Captain in the second half of the 17th century.
    The location of this chapel, in the entrance of the village, do not answer an arbitrary feeling. As a Saint is identified with the Black Death, by all means, it is a custom to place them in Canary Islands chapels in the entrance of villages. Its construction is related to Mudejar tradition showed on masonry walls with a three slope roof and in the decoration of the coffered ceilling.

    I had lunch when I got to Agaete. There are a lot of restaurants close to harbour. You could also buy some food or souvenirs in shops nearby. These restaurants have oceanfront terraces that make you feel more comfortable while eating your meal.

    THE FINGER OF GOD

    An impressive rock formation can be seen just in front of the imposing Tamadaba cliffs. The Canarian writer Domingo Doreste gave this geological oddity the name of "The Finger of God" for its peculiar similarity to an enormous finger pointing towards the heavens.
