54000 m2 AND DESTROYED HOUSE IN THE SKIRT OF THE SACRED MOUNTAIN OF TINDAYA.The Tindaya mountain is also known as the Sacred Mountain of Tindaya and is a protected natural space located in the Esquinzo Plain.Its height is only 400 meters, and on clear days the highest points of Tenerife and Gran Canaria can be seen from the top.This perfect pyramid that arises from the Esquinzo plains, north of Fuerteventura, holds a rich archaeological heritage that has become the fruit of legends and beliefs that still persist, the men and women who lived here before the arrival of the Norman conquerors. Back in the early fifteenth century, they turned it into something spiritual that transcends the rock.Montana Grande: Tindaya in the language of those people.On both sides of the Esquinzo ravine, in the municipality of La Oliva and, near its mouth, we find the Taca payment.

Las Casas de Taca, are a group of about twenty houses, which are scattered, and today are uninhabited.

The Casas de Taca maintain the structure of the houses of the traditional Majorera architecture.These houses are made of stone and are on one level.They began as constructions for the protection of the shepherds of the area, and they evolved, little by little, until they became the type of housing that we can observe today.

The largest of all these houses that we find in this area is made up of 9 living spaces.In it the most remarkable thing is the spacious kitchen.As the most important element in this kitchen we find the hood, which is large.In general, they were built on the basis of a beam embedded in the side walls at the height of the view, on which a series of "ribs" started towards the ceiling on which a cake was spread that was later whitewashed.The kitchen has an oven, and both the countertop and cabinets are built on site.

Outside the house there is a large corral, in which the ground is paved in two circles like an era.About 5 meters south of the house we find a small shrimp, and a few meters on the north side a cistern.

Due to the poverty of the area and the fact that its inhabitants were traditionally dedicated to agriculture and livestock, they had large tracts of agricultural land, which are parceled in the vicinity of the houses.

The grouping of these houses possibly had as its origin and evolution the settlement of a family, where the houses of the married children were located next to that of the parents.And later, some of the land or houses were rented to other families, making it possible for the new users to enjoy a certain independence.
