Santa Maria de Guia is located on the northern coastline. It was formerly part of Galdar.
This is where Lujan Perez grew up. He was the most famous architect and sculptor to come from the islands.
The busy, steep cobbled streets, pretty painted houses and the tree lined main square are just part of a visit to this lovely mountain town. Guia is one of those places where it is best to ignore vehicles, pushchairs, shops and people at usual height, but instead focus just above head height. There you will be amazed to see richly adornment balconies and terraces, carved ornamental wooden structures, highly decorative and impressive structures where it is clear that money was no barrier to obtaining quality workmanship. It is easy to lose yourself in a world full of colour and cheerfulness that will take you back to the former splendour of the municipality.
The story of Guia began when Don Sancho built a church in honour of Santa Maria de Guia (Saint Mary of Guia). Construction of the church was completed in 1509, and this marked the emergence of Guia as a new town. Inside the church you’ll see some of Perez’s most important works. In fact, it’s more like a museum dedicated to the sculptor than a church.
The town is most famous for its flower cheese or “Queso de Flor”. It’s made from sheep and goats milk as well as thistle flowers. It’s absolutely delicious. It has a surprisingly distinctive flavour and has won numerous awards. Every year they hold a cheese festival in honour of this unique speciality.
