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.
