The city centre of Granadilla de Abona emerged near the end of the 16th century. It had previously been a refuge for numerous native Guanches who rebelled against the Spanish conquerors. Many important archaeological sites bear witness to this fact such as the caves of Chiñama, La Jaquita and el Tagoror del Rey.
From the Chiñama viewpoint there are views of the coast, the middle slopes and mountaintops of Granadilla as well as of the neighbouring municipality of San Miguel de Abona. This exceptional spot located on Chiñama Mountain allows spectators to survey a landscape formed by various small villages and areas of crops, where small plots primarily intended for the owners' own consumption are interspersed with greenhouses. In turn, it allows you to view the topography of the south of the island and the famous "ere" at Charco del Pino.
