Most of Tamadaba, which is covered in a forest of native Canarian pines in almost all its extension, maintains the primitive characteristics of what was an emblematic forest for the ancient Canarians. This Canarian pine is just as magnificent today as it was in ancient times. On its northern edge, it also includes the troglodyte settlement of Visvique which, from the highlands, presides over the sacred routes towards the mountains.
To the west, the sacred landscape of Tirma stands out, as it has important archaeological manifestations of high symbolic and historic value. Present written sources about the conquest of the island and the first beginnings of its resettlement are unanimous in highlighting the supremacy of the sanctuary of Tirma, within the indigenous sacred areas. In spite of the fact that this place name has a very local character today, there is no lack of data claiming that the recurrent allusions in the texts refer not so much to an isolated sanctuary, as to an entire territorial demarcation, and to a vast sacred space, coinciding with the surroundings of the Caldera de Tejeda. The distorting colonial filter that is typical of these texts, should, of course, be taken into account.
