The Guenches were the old habitants of the Islands. They did Rituals and Animal Sacrifices on Top of The Hill.
As the spanish Conquerors came, the Guanches fought from above against theyr Enemys. But after a while they had nothing to eat, so they decides to jump in the death instead of beeing conquered.
