The first historical references of the caser date back to the first years of the 17th century, when Gonzalo Fern ndez de Ocampo acquired the Las Palmas estate in 1610 from the Armas family. The lineage of the Fern ndez Ocampo is established in Tenerife since the Conquest and its members held important public positions in the island's government.

Already in 1684 there is proof of the construction of the Hermitage of San Gonzalo de Amarante, attached to the hacienda, by Pedro Fern ndez de Ocampo. In 1681 this owner mentions the large houses of mayorazgo that he owns in the Valley of Las Palmas and that, surely, allude to the current hacienda, proving his antiquity.

The hacienda shows a U-shaped plant, characteristic of many similar constructions on the island, with the small hermitage located in its NE angle, as an exempt body, and articulated at a single height level.

The main façade is oriented to the north and at its western end there is a cover framed in whistling and a door with two wooden leaves already disappeared. Through the entrance hall you access the main courtyard, as an articulating element of the house, in which there are two dragos.

The house is 36m long and 28 wide, and its maximum height is 3.7m.

From the functional point of view, the building is divided into two clearly differentiated sectors, with a total of 11 units: the service area, to the east, with clay pavement (except in the barn that was made of wood); and the domestic area, to the west, with coffered ceilings of a certain quality, including the kitchen (which preserves two ovens and the chimney) and where the wineries are also located. The rooms in this sector are connected to each other, unlike the other sector, in which the units have no internal communication.

The pavements of the noble sector alternate the stone with clay tiles and only the cellar is rammed earth. Some of the windows that are conserved are of guillotine and do not correspond with the original ones.

In some units the roofs (inclined of two and four waters) of tile have yielded, while others have been disappearing.

Hermitage of San Gonzalo

The Hermitage of San Gonzalo has a unique cover of half a point in canter a, with an identical material sword and pavement of clay tiles. On the outside it has a four-water roof with curved tiles, while an interesting octagonal coffered ceiling is documented with schematic pinching. Its floral and geometric decorations are characteristic of Baroque.

Different buildings

In the surroundings of the main house there are different buildings (farmhouses) that were occupied by mediators or agricultural workers linked to the farm and with constructive features characteristic of traditional architecture. Specifically there are six sets, some of them without cover, others show an acceptable state of preservation. In some cases they appear conformed by several simple terraced modules, with a two and four water tile roof.

towards the rear of the farm, in the corner of the west wing of the farm there is a winery related to the boom of the cultivation of the 17th century vineyard, it is a winery attached and excavated in a rocky outcrop, as is the custom of Take advantage of Anaga, still preserves the winery deposit with the biquera, the tub or second deposit and its spectacular carved stone of about two tons. Its wooden elements have disappeared almost entirely, leaving only the front supports of the beam (v virgins).
