Tara y Cendro
The first inhabitants of Telde lived on the northern slope of the cliff, where the Prehispanic settlements of Tara and Cendra are now located. In reality, it's a group of very primitive buildings formed from cave-dwellings dug out of the rock, although some of these caves were formed by volcanic eruptions. One of the main characteristics of these two enclaves is that the cave-dwellings were still used until quite recently, both as homes and as places for keeping cattle. Tara was the location of the discovery of the so-called Idolo de Tara (Tara Idol), an anthropomorphous statue, considered the goddess of fertility, which can be seen in the Museo Canario.
