La Victoria de Acentejo
There are many signs of its pre-Hispanic past within the municipal boundaries of La Victoria de Acentejo. A "tagoror" (meeting place for tribal chiefs) has been found and an area rich in archaeological finds between Barranco Hondo and the Ancón cliffs, although it has been fairly comprehensively pillaged. Two mommies and several objects were found in a burial cave. The Risco Caido cave is in Barranco Hondo, near a burial ground, and there is another burial cave in El Caletón. The popular architecture is an open invitation to visit the whole borough.
Some of the places that must be visited include the parish church, with valuable pieces of tooled silver inside, along with paintings and figures of great artistic value and a lovely baptismal font.
A first-time visitor should include the following sites on his agenda: the parish church, the hundred-year-old pine tree next to the church, the Santo Domingo convent, La Resbala houses and the new Town Hall building, with the old baptismal font in the patio. Nature sites include: the El Floridero, Ortuño, La Reyerta, La Plaza and Doña Carmen look out spots. The truth is that the whole borough is worth seeing from a scenic point of view. There is a Recreation Area at La Hoya de Los Abades. To get there, take the La Matanza or the La Vica road and the track towards La Hoya de Los Revolcaderos.
