Village of Tegoyo
Tegoyo is a specific term Guanche origin of place names of Lanzarote which applies to a wide area of
northwestern town of Tias, within which are distinguished: a small town with only Tegoyo name or compound Tegoyo Vega, mountain Tegoyo one, inscribed on military maps with Cerro undeserving name, being a real mountain and well defined, and a wide range of crops called Vega or Tegoyo Vegas.

It is cited as distinct place in the seventeenth century by the scribe Salvador Quintana, sometimes cited as Tegoy and others like Tegoyo (Bello González Jiménez and Sánchez 2003, doc. 162).

And half of the nineteenth century it collects Madoz in his Dictionary (1986: 196) as Tegoyo: a "farm" at the edge of a lava flow 'curd and cold "between the mountains and Conil Guardilama which, however, has ground "premium composite good crumb and covered with sands that produce good grapes and fruit trees on one side and corn, vegetables and legumes in the other." Later (p. 199), in the dictionary of madoz, another entry appears as Tejoyo (sic), term. Tias, without more data, it might be writing this same location variant, more likely than the other Lanzarote Taoyo toponym.

Population Tegoyo right is 211 inhabitants (1 January 2010)
