Culture.

Interesting examples of architecture in different houses can be appreciated, such as the Pirate’s House. Also well worth visiting are the religious buildings.

The Game of the Stick (Juego del Palo), one of the oldest indigenous sports of Canary, is a tradition in this municipality. It is a vernacular sport that has had a good number of players in all the region and that today is represented by the Verga family. They are considered the most consummate players of the half sick mode, with a particular style, inherited by the master in such practices : Cho Eugenio Díaz.

Today, one of their most representative elements is the traditional “Manta Esperancera” an ancient garment, used to fight the rigors of the cold climate.

In some areas of the municipality, such as Llano del Moro, are remains of old wind mills, witnesses of an already disappearing activity, where the daily roasted corn meal was produced.

Among the municipality’s festivities is Our Lady of la Esperanza, on the first Sunday of August, with the popular pilgrimage that features as a last act, the burning of the “Haragán”.
