This cave is classed as a Historic Site and historians claim it was once the cave-palace of the Guanche King Acaymo. Here, the Guanche people would worship the Virgen de Candelaria, who was associated with the aboriginal goddess Chaxiraxi until she was identified by the conquistadors as the Virgin Mary. This was, therefore, the first sanctuary devoted to the Virgen de Candelaria on the entire archipelago and is highly significant in archaeological terms.
