Cave of Chinguaro

Cave of Chinguaro



This cave was the residence of Mencey Acaymo. The Virgin of El Socorro was brought to this place after her appearance on the beach of Chimisay and stayed there for 54 years. The cave and its surroundings became an archaeological park, including a visitor center, a museum, an Ermita and pilgrimage shrine. The first step in consolidating this project has already taken place with the approval of the special plan of the Barranco de Chinguaro.
