Wells and Drying Lots of Lupine Beans and Flax in Porís de Tigalate
The ethnographic set of wells and drying facilities for lupine beans and flax in Porís de Tigalate is the best conserved one on the island. In this place, lupine beans were prepared to be consumed directly or to become roasted maize meal (gofio); in addition, the flax plant fiber was tanned, main raw material for the fabric manufacture. The wells are very close to the sea and they are generally natural holes where sea water breaks in. In these places, lupine beans and flax were introduced, and once extracted from the wells; they remained extended to be dried by the sun.

The visit to this place enables the enjoyment of the oldest and most interesting house settlements on the island, as it is the case of Barranco Hondo. To this point, the presence of the great Salto de Tigalate cave and to the south the Río Muerto's houses should be added, already in Fuencaliente.
