Culture.

Examples of its pre Hispanic past can be appreciated in places of important findings such as La Garañona, El Risco de los Angeles, Cueva de los Viejos, Barranco de Acentejo, Risco del Castillo, La Baranda, Las Breñas, where there are dwelling caves, and sepulchres (some with mummies) showing different tools used by the guanches.

A walk through the historic area is an attractive spectacle due to the examples of domestic buildings built in island style.

Specially notable is the Classic Music Season, that programs concerts at the Municipal Auditorium with groups related to the Tenerife Symphonic Orchestra and the Teobaldo Power Camera Orchestra. It is complemented all year long by treaties subscribed by the Insular Chapter, autonomous government and different island organizations for theatre, dance, music, and folklore.

The representation of the Lord’s Epiphany or Act of the Three Wise Men, an annual event that takes place on a scenario of more than 2 000 m 2 and with a cast of approximately 400 actors, it is without a doubt, the most important manifestation where all the town participates, since it unites the efforts of each and every one of the municipality’s groups and a multitude of town dwellers.

Among the local celebrations, the most notable are those of San Pedro Apostle (the Sunday closest to June 29th) and that of San Nicolás. For the latter, it is a tradition to bless bread and to deal it out, then the pieces are thrown to the rooftops of the houses, as an augury for abundant rains.
