Los Cardones was built at the end of the XIX century to be used as farmed-based accommodation, by Juan María Barreto, upon his return from Cuba, where he had emigrated some years before. Some of the materials used in the constructions were: stone, gravel, bricks and clay tiles that were mixed in hand made furnaces. For the ceilings, floors, doors and windows wood from the Canarian pine was used, known as “tea”. At that time there were no means of communication other than the rural paths, which is why Los Cardones was refuge for many people that moved from one place to another. This was the case until 1953 when the infrastructure improved. It continued to be farm-based accommodation until 1994, in which year it was renovated for rural tourism purposes.
