Santa Ursula has many remains of its pre-Hispanic past. In Quinta Roja, pieces of perforated shells, ropes, beads, etc., and burial caves have been found in Quinta Roja, Barranco de Acebiños and Barranco Naranjos.
Both the town itself and many of the smaller villages are picturesque and worthy of a visit.
The church dates back to the 17th century and conserves some important works of art inside, including a figure of Santa Rita by Fernando Estévez and a Christ by Luis Cabrera Viera, uncle of Viera y Clavijo.
Several of the churches that have been built in the borough at different times are also interesting to visit, like La Corujera and San Luis.
