History.

After the conquest, land was given out in this area and as the stories go, hardly thirty years later, when the guanches “still jumped the cliffs at Lagarete en el Agua de Dios and dwelt in their caves”, the conquerors, already owners of the land, chose as their patron saint San Marcos, the evangelist .

The first parochial church was the one of San Marcos, built prior to 1530, because it was located between two canyons and it was small for the parishioners, so it was decided to relocate it.

The Royal Audience celebrated here two meetings while fleeing the plague epidemic that struck the region in the year of 1583.

It reaches its municipal independence with the constitution of 1812.
