Patate is known as the ‘Valley of Eternal Spring’ thanks to its constant warm climate. This valley is surrounded by beautiful mountains, rivers, natural and agricultural landscapes. It is famous as a fruit growing region and known for its local wine production. In the main square one can experience the tranquility in which the local people live whilst watching a wonderful sunset and enjoying a glass of wine and local arepa (flat bread) for which this area is famous for.

The location of this valley, just like Hacienda Manteles, offers the perfect spot to sit and watch the volcano Tungurahua (active since 1999).
