Children playing with the Guanche Kings.* In this viewpoint you will find 2 great sculptures representing the (menseys) Guanche kings who led the island before the Conquest, about the year 1402, at this time the island was divided into two kingdoms, north Maxorata which was led by king and south JANDÍA Guise was led by King Ayose. These kingdoms were divided by a line running from Puerto de la Peña to the Barranco de la Torre which would be the boundary between the parts of Guise and Ayose. The sculptures are 4.5 meters tall, impressive when you are standing next to them and are by Emiliano Hernandez.
