Description

When the Spanish settlers arrived in the Canary Islands these were inhabited by a civilization with about 2000 years of history behind it that was totally eliminated and lost over the centuries. Today it is still difficult to calculate the origin and characteristics of this civilization: we know that they arrived by sea and founded a series of kingdoms, they lived like in the stone age but they possessed a series of astronomical knowledge and moral laws worthy of a civilization advanced; they worshiped the sun and some idols from the top of their mountains. Most likely descendants of bereber populations (North Africa) with whom we can find similarities, they have left us little to understand their culture: stone engravings representing spiral-shaped or meandering motifs still not entirely understandable, ceramics with refined details (the most beautiful of the archipelago), places of worship with archaeo-astronomical references, small stone constructions used by shepherds to protect themselves from atmospheric events, natural and artificial caves where regular daily life was taken.
