Culture.

El Jaral and Las Fuentes are examples of traditional architecture, the settlements of Chinche and Aripe stand out due to their aborigine etchings.

Among the local celebrations, the most outstanding is on the third Sunday in September, it is the one of Our Lady of the Light (Nuestra Señora de la Luz), very crowded and with various acts. Its beginnings date back to 1570, when a shepherd tells an aristocrat lady of Garachico, who was visiting his lands in Malpaís de Isora, of the existence of an image of Our Lady in a cave. Rescued from such a place, it was placed in a temple built for it. An annual pilgrimage called the Festivity of Nobility, visited the temple. The rivalries of the time between both places, caused the pilgrimage to disappear in 1878, although the Festivity survived, this tradition having been saved recently.
