Tias which overlooks Puerto del Carmen is the chief town of the municipality of the same name. For this reason many of the administrative centres for Puerto del Carmen´s local services are located here.

The name of this town is due to the spinster aunts of the Governor of Gran Canaria Don Alonso Fajardo who were called Doña Francisca and Doña Hernan Fajardo. To begin with it was known as Tias de Fajardo but later it lost the surname and became known as Tias. The word ´tia´ meaning aunt.(photo:Lmbuga)
