The Benahoarita Archaeology Museum shows the habitat, the industries, the exploitation of the environment, and the magico-religious beliefs of the benahoaritas, the prehispanic inhabitants of La Palma. To this end, its installations use the latest audiovisual and museographical media presently available. Its facilities are open to the island’s inhabitants, visiting tourists, and the scientific community. The display aims to convey comprehensive knowledge of prehispanic La Palma along three axes: the specific geographical setting (relief, climate, animal and plant biological diversity); the territorial organization of the island (the location of prehispanic settlements, the constant or seasonal use of natural resources and their typologies), and prehispanic culture (all the elements enabling comprehension of the wisdom of the benahoaritas in their use of natural resources, their knowledge, and their beliefs).
- Opening hours:
