Poblado de La Atalayita

The village of primitive stone dwellings at La Atalayita dates back to before the Spanish Conquest to the Island's Majo population who are thought to be of Berber origin. After the conquest local Shepherds continued to use the site, adding corals for their animals.

At the interpretive centre, the visitor can learn about the excavations that have taken place at the site and the artefacts that have been found here.

Signposts for the Poblado de La Atalayita and Pozo Negro are at a minimum. To get there, take the FV-2 and take the turn off for Pozo Negro (which is easy to miss). There is a wall with the name "Poblado de La Atalayita" at the entrance of a dirt track, which leads to the settlement.
