Tuesday April 16 the archaeological site "El Maipés" was inaugurated, a necropolis of located in the Agaete mountains of Gran Canaria. The site opened its doors, hand in hand with The Council, with a concert by the timplist Germán López and offering a guided tour of the facilities.

The whitish remains in the necropolis reveal the evidence of a tsunami, originating from Tenerife, which devastated the place 800,000 years. The place shows an important relevance having found in it more than 600 graves in an area of ​​250,000 meters, making it the most important place in the Canary archipelago.

Although the 40% of the site was looted, there are still many puzzles to solve that are waiting to be solved as the investigations progress.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
