A tour through the municipality of La Aldea de San Nicolás gives the visitor a chance to appreciate the popular Canarian architecture in the old quarter of the town such as the houses of stone and mud from the 17th and 18th centuries, and the houses with balconies from the 18th century. Examples of these are the Casa del Balcón, the first house in the town centre, Casas Blancas and the Casa del Corredor, which is in the Tocodomán quarter. The Museo Vivo (live museum) is very popular. It is a live representation of Canarian culture and traditions. Threshing carried out with animals, the making of bread in a traditional stone oven, the milking of goats, the tasting of milk and gofio or the making of cheese are some of the representations that can be seen
The legacy of the aborigines is also very significant in La Aldea. At the Archaeological Site of Los Caserones, a rich collection of pintaderas (seals) and mud and stone idols was found and is preserved today in the Museo Canario in Las Palmas. You can visit the Túmulo Funerario(burial mound) of the Lomo de Caserones (La Aldea beach).
