Discover the heritage of Mogán


Little is known about the origin of the name Mogán.  It does resemble the Canarian name for the plant mocán. Another theory which being considered is that it comes from a word from the ancient Canary dialect with the same meaning as: house of God. This was a sacred precinct above the town of Mogán which was on the summit of Tauro. The shepherds of Majada Alta called it the church of the Canaries until a few years ago.
