Between the Guanches and Pirates

HISTORY

Stories of old are intermingled with the sun, the land and the sea.  Adeje has been written about since the XV century as one of the most populated and important Guanche (Tenerife aborigine) kingdoms. The richness of the land was the envy of many in particular of the new colonists and rapidly they began to exploit the land to grow sugar cane and subsequently vines, cultivate the cochineal beetle and in the 20th century tomatoes and bananas.. 

  • GUANCHES
    Canarian Aborigines

    The name Adeje means “massive mountain” and comes from the old Guanche kingdom that existed here. It was the most important Guanche kingdom in Tenerife and the seat of the “Gran Tinerfe”, aborigine king of the island.

  • PIRATES
    From the Atlantic waters

    In Canary Islands acted Pirates of all nationalities, but they were mainly English, French, Berber, and the Netherlands. Since the early years of conquest attacks occurred that what he sought was looting and the capture of Guanche natives to be slaves. Also Berber acted sweeping settlements that existed in retaliation with the Cowgirl is doing in North Africa.

HERITAGE CONSERVATION

From the 15th Century until modern times construction and growth in the borough was close to the “Río de Adexe”, culturally important buildings such as the Santa Úrsula church, the Taucho Historical Complex and the Fort House , all containing sculptures and paintings, converting Adeje in to a centre of cultural and historical interest in South Tenerife.

These days the heritage of the borough continues to grow and the traditional and modern exists happily side by side, as can be seen in the Magma congress centre, the town’s Plaza de España or the Town Hall itself.

  • CASA FUERTE
    Charms of the municipality

    Declared an official Site of Cultural Interest in the monument section, the Adeje Fort House is part of a selection of buildings from centuries ago that have modified their use, from a fortified residence to a country house and citadel with a square area, occupying 7,200 m2.

  • CONVENT
    Declared of interest culture

    The convent was founded in 1679 as an initiative of the first Marques de Adeje, Juan Bautista de Ponte y Pagés.

ART

The history of a town, its dreams, hopes, problems and upsets are all reflected in the architecture, paintings and sculptures.  Adeje is the guardian of a part of Tenerife’s history.  The life of the area over centuries, the evolution of religious beliefs.  From prehistoric guanche etchings to modern graffiti the history of the borough is reflected in the local arts and crafts.  What was invented back in the day as a household gadget is perhaps a museum piece now, an anthropological aide to the cultural history of the borough.

  • ARCHITECTURE
    Living history

    Wood, limestone volcanic rocks, stone, mud, primary materials in traditional Adeje houses. The villages in the midlands such as Taucho or La Quinta are genuine architectural treasures.

  • PAINTINGS
    Tradition and modernity

    Traditional religious pieces mixed with modern murals speak of a past that’s not too far away. With an on-going emphasis on renovation and care for the past, as well as projecting the future, the city hosts many exhibitions.

Tradition and avant-guard

GASTRONOMY

Adeje cooking has echoes of the economic history of the islands.  The preferences of the islanders and the lack of resources during centuries past meant that potatoes, cereals and foods derived from local livestock formed the basis for local gastronomy.  Gofio (toasted cereal), goat’s milk, dried figs, fish, lemon verbena were staples of the Adeje people’s diets.  In recent years there has been a real revolution in cooking in the borough with a virtual explosion in the gastronomy offer, mixing local ingredients and  recipes with international touches.
