The enterprising action of man has known well how to take advantage of its natural resources, turning it into the first producer of apples in the country and enabling it to obtain excellent quality fruit, very much coveted in the world market. All this, in addition to the production of other important crops, such as pear, peach and vegetables, contributes to the settlement of several facilities for the production and export of juice, jams, cider and canned products, among others.

There are countless farms with intensive regional crops that may me visited by tourists, who may appreciate the dazzling show of colors offered by the plantations along the four seasons.

It is possible to see the admirable history of this area through the numerous monuments, museums and historical buildings that reflect the effort and the progress of its settlers.
