Sant Mateu or San Mateo Church

Church of St. Matthew. The Church as a place of union

The Church of San Mateo brings together the parishioners of a region famous for its wines

In the eighteenth century, Bishop Abad and the Sierra began building churches on strategically chosen points of the island, so that parishioners would minimize their displacement, favoring popular fervor. Sant Mateu was in an area of little strategic interest, both military and commercial. Rugged Mountains protected them naturally from access from the sea. The distance from the main urban nuclei, for the time, also posed an inconvenience for their people. However, Sant Mateu possessed a value that still lasts. Its valleys are very fertile lands. Destined today to the production of wine mainly, its haciendas were distributed to the length and width of its extension. Given these characteristics, the Church of Sant Mateu is built on a small hill located in the center of this community.
