  Guanche Statues, Candelaria
by steventilly

The Guanches were the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands before the Spanish arrived. Little is known about them now but their memory is preserved in various places by means of representative statues. These ones were at Candelaria, ranged along the seaward side of the main square there, beside the basilica, others that I know of can be found in Santiago del Tiede.
