D. Oswaldo Betancort García, Alcalde-Presidente del
Ayuntamiente de Teguise, inauguró esta escultura homenaje al
"Rancho de Pascuas de Teguise" el 23 de diciembre de 2013.

Los Ranchos de Ánimas adquieren cierta importancia sobre todo a partir de 1580,
cuando se funda el Convento de Santa María de Miraflores de Teguise
El Rancho de Ánimas de Teguise, proporcionaba la principal fuente de ingreso de la Cofradía, que
tenía entre otras actividades las propias del culto a las almas, misas, entierros y pedir limosnas
para los pobres, misión ésta que era encomendada al Rancho de Ánimas.
El Rancho de Teguise al limitar sus actuaciones al periodo de la Navidad,
se le conoce como Rancho de Pascuas.
La tradición de los Ranchos de Pascuas de Teguise, con más de 400 años de historia, la viven sus
componentes como un importante patrimonio de sus vidas. Cada año en la noche del 24 de
diciembre, viejos y jóenes, al son de sus peculiares instrumentos, hacen vibrar los
cimientos de la historia de este pueblo
