  First Battle of Acentejo - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The First Battle of Acentejo was a battle that took place on the island of Tenerife between the Guanches and an alliance of Spaniards, other Europeans, associated natives (mostly from other islands), on May 31, 1494, during the Spanish conquest of this island.
Unable to manuever with their horses, due to the fact that these slopes were covered in very thick, arboreal brush, the Guanches, who numbered some 300 men, under the leadership of the warrior Tinguaro, made use of their mobility and intimate knowledge of the terrain to gain the upper hand.
Fernández de Lugo, though wounded, was able to escape with his life (by exchanging the red cape of an Adelantado for that of a common soldier), and his surviving forces (some 200 men) were harried until he was forced to re-embark and sail back to Gran Canaria.

 sociology - Second Battle of Acentejo
The Second Battle of Acentejo was a battle that took place on December 25, 1495, between the invading Spanish forces and the natives of the island of Tenerife, known as Guanches.
Whereas in the First Battle of Acentejo the Guanches had been favored by their knowledge of the mountainous terrain, in this second engagement, the native forces found themselves at a disadvantage on the plain of Aguere.
The Second Battle of Acentejo was certainly not the last battle on Tenerife but certainly the most decisive, resulting in the ultimate incorporation of the island into the Crown of Castile and the subjugation of the aborigines.

In the battle of Acentejo alone 900 of the 1120 who composed the conquering army were lost.
It is interesting to note that it was one of these representatives, who, being at Philadelphia in 1788, urged through the Nuncio Vincenti the establishment of the first Catholic diocese in the United States of America (Diario de las Cortes de Cadiz sesion de Enero de 1813).
As a result of their petition an auxiliary bishop was appointed in 1816, and the diocese of Teneriffe was erected in 1819 by the Bull of Pius VII dated 1 February, 1818, the Church of Los Remedios at San Cristobal de la Laguna being designated as the cathedral.
