The original inhabitants of Gran Canaria, the Guanches were described as tall white skinned (sometimes blue eyed and blond).

At Telde you’ll find Montana Sagrada or ‘Holy Mountain’ once sacred to the race as well as several caves once inhabited by the Guanches and close to San Bartolome de Tirajana is the Guanches’ Necropolis of Artenara.
