“A place to live” is an exhibition organized by the Cabildo de Gran Canaria and The Canary Museum in which KEYS are provided with which to understand, from various points of view the Canarian Aboriginal villages.

The people that we recognize today as a Canary was the product of a historical process in which various and varied factors intervened, being transcendental the influence of the ancient cultural tradition that these people brought from the continent together with the internal idiosyncrasies of society that was raised on the island itself.

In its configuration, insular isolation also played an important role, and, of course, the passage of time. These and other elements set up a village that over successive generations made the island their home, making it a place to live.
