Description

The area around Barranco de La Arena boasts a wealth of natural features that make it an ideal place to discover and connect with nature. 

It is located above 1200 m, an altitude dominated by a dense, dry Canary Island pine forest, punctuated by the singing of chaffinches and the tapping of the great spotted woodpecker on the oldest trunks. 

In addition to the great diversity of wildlife, Barranco de la Arena also introduces you to aspects of the island’s geography, such as its geology, climate and human activity over the course of history. The traces of human intervention in the area include pitch ovens, pine trees tapped for their resin, water galleries and goat pens. 

All these vestiges bear witness to a time when the island’s population had close ties to the natural resources of these areas.
