    Population
    Before some decennia the adventures and history of the Guanche Era (the original inhabitants of the island) remained an enigma, but recently – in 2008 –the museum of Tenerife has opened the doors for the general public and tourists with the history of the island and its native inhabitants. The early Guanche inhabitants of Tenerife were known as the bravest and were the most feared people of the Canary Islands. These were cavemen who embalmed their deceased people and buried them as well in caves. On the basis of the found remains of mummies it has been established that the bodies were of Berber origin from North/West Africa. The official language is Spanish. In addition a lot of English is spoken because of the tourism.

Among the traditional specialties the largest offering consists of the papas arrugadas, the mojos rojo and verde (sauces of peppers of coriander), various kinds of honey and sea fruit. Of all the products from the Canary kitchen, the gofio is the principal. This consists of among others roasted wheat flour. In Tenerife there is a considerable cheese tradition originating from the native population, which for its culinary needs was mostly directed to goats and sheep.
