Guanche history in Los Gigantes Cliffs.
In pre-Hispanic times, the Guanches, the ancient inhabitants of the island, knew these cliffs as the “Wall of Hell” or “Wall of the Devil”, due to the almost impassable appearance they present towards the interior of the island.
Only some ravines such as Carrizales, Juan López, El Natero, Barranco Seco, among others, make their way between the cliffs, leaving small sandy or natural gravel beaches at their mouths, which are frequented by pleasure boats.
