Its geometrical motifs make it the most unique representation of the Pre-Hispanic wall paintings, an exceptional testimony of the artistic and symbolic expression of the people of the Canary Islands. Excavations made here since 1987 until today have confirmed the fact that Cueva Pintada used to be part of a village with over fifty houses and artificial caves dating back from the 6th to the 16th centuries.The remains of the indigenous village of Cueva Pintada can be admired from a walkway surrounding those structures preserved, which allows visitors to look at the detail of the houses and indigenous caves. « less
