Long Description:

At the entrance of the small mountain village Masca is this bronze bust, honouring José Pérez González (1896-1984). The hamlet received its proper road (since the 1960s, a narrow winding mountain road connects Masca with Buenavista del Norte and Santiago del Teide) as well as electricity, thanks to the former mayor.

The text of the plaque reads:

D. José Pérez González
(1896-1984)
Alcalde pedaneo que fue
de su "novia" Masca
A Pérez que le robo la luz a las
tinieblas y el camino a las bestias
de carga, y que ya es historia entre
estos andenes y barrancos.
A. Fajaroo

At the right is an other plaque:

El cabildo de Tenerife
y el Ayuntamiento de
Buenavista, siendo alcalde
D. Aurelio abreu expósito
costearon, en colaboración
con los vecinos, esta ogra.
Masca, 1 de octubre de 2006.
Escultor: Eladio de la Cruz
