This site, along with the Gáldar Painted Cave, is one of the most important relics of the heritage of Native Islanders prior to Spanish conquest. It's also known as Granero de Valerón, as it's a complex of little caves excavated out of steep rock, in the form of cells or compartments, where the islanders used to store the grain obtained from the harvest. It's located on Cuesta de Silva and juts out of Azuaje Ravine. A less credible theory has it that the caves could have been home to the Aboriginal priestesses who played a decisive role in religious life before Christianity was brought over.
