There are several sites dotted around the island, mainly panels with engravings. Most examples of this art can be found from Anaga to Teno, the most numerous have been uncovered in: Santa Cruz, El Rosario, Candelaria, Guimar, Arico, San Miguel, Granadilla, Arona, Adeje, Guia de Isora, El Tanque, Santa Ursula, La Matanza, La Laguna, Tegueste. The first petroglyphics found were those of Hoya Fría in the Barranco del Muerto and those of Aripe in Guia de Isora. Many of these sites have been destroyed by acts of vandalism, there are others, protected, such as Guargacho, Los Goros, in Punta de la Rasca, the Guanche temple of Los Rodeos, Cañada de los Ovejeros, Pirámide de Icod. One of the most striking archaeological findings in the Canary Islands was the Zanata Stone ( La Piedra Zanata).
