The people of Costa Adeje are known for their friendliness, generosity and their willingness to show their city and its culture to visitors.
The Guanches were the ancient inhabitants of the island of Tenerife before the Spanish conquest and it is this affectionate name that the locals of Tenerife and Costa Adeje go by!
Costa Adeje, Tenerife, is a town strongly influenced by the primitive culture of the Guanches, who were the first inhabitants of the island before the area was colonised by Spain 500 years ago.
Its first inhabitants lived in caves, which proved to be valuabel in that they kept them cool in summer and warm in winter. Nobody knows for sure how they came to Tenerife, as there is no evidence on how they crossed the ocean from Africa, although one theory is that they were abandoned by pirates or banished by their own people. Likewise, they may have crossed using vessels made out of bulrushes.
The social structure of the Guanches was well advanced. They had a chief advised by a group of men also considered leaders. They were eventually discovered by the Spaniards, who praised their advanced civilisation, as they even had their own pottery. The diet of these aboriginals included goat meat and pork, fruits, milk and butter and they often wore robes made ??up from leather and rushes.
