Before the conquest of Tenerife by the Castilians, the Guanches, the first settlers of the island, knew the place as “Abicore” and “Ibaute”.
After the colonization, the names of ‘Valle de las Higueras’ were alternated, due to its abundance in the area; “Valle de Salazar”, from its new owners; and “Valle de San Andrés”, for being the patron saint of the hermitage erected in the place. After the founding of the parish, its modern name was consolidated.
