Villa de Arafo
- Arquitectura Civil y Doméstica. Arquitectura Doméstica Rural -

This building possibly built in the eighteenth century, maintains the constructive characteristics of the rural architecture of that century, is located on Antonio Curbelo Rodr guez street, close to what was the initial settlement of the first settlers of Arafo, to whom They are credited with the exploitation of the pinewood present on the hillside for logging, hence this area is known as the Sawmill. The eruption of the Arenas volcano in 1705, devastated the pine forest and the appearance of the Malpaes, caused part of the population to move further north. In 1871 the chapel of La Cruz was blessed, built at the initiative of Mr. Tom s P. rez Bencomo, in whose surroundings some historical buildings can be seen, linked to agricultural activities, and that near the street of the Cross, gave Departure to these through the old Plazuela del Llano.

Isolated ground floor rectangular house.
The construction is done with stone masonry collected with rubble and mud inside. In the corners, cross-linked ashlars are observed to give cohesion to the whole.
The main facade has two openings, placed to the left of the central axis, leaving the other side as a blind wall.
The carpenter is made of wood, of very simple size, being only wooden boards with flat molding. The leaves are swinging.
Attached to the house there is an oven, from which you can clearly see the mouth.
The roof is inclined with a curved roof tile made of four waters, where the Lima and the ridge have been subsequently collected with mortar to provide cohesion.
