Intro

  1. This course offers a singular sight for lovers of intense wilderness. Its uniqueness lies not only in the fact that this area is exceptionally rich in endemic species, but also in the way it concentrates the most interesting flora of the Risco de Famara. Due to its steep topography, orientation, and altitude between 400 and 600 meters above sea level, it is exposed to low mists of the trade winds, therefore maintaining ideal conditions for the development of a particular biodiversity.
  2. Moreover, the Rincón de Aganada also attracts quite a peculiar interest. This viewpoint offers a panoramic view of the west coast of the Island. It belongs to the Natural Park of the Archipelago Chinijo, in the Macizo Famara. Furthermore, it is classified Special Area of Conservation (SAC in English, ZEC in Spanish) of the Natura 2000 Network, and Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA in English, ZEPA in Spanish).
  3. De camino de regreso a la Plaza de Haría, podremos observar la multitud de pozos al lado del Barranco, huella de la Cultura del Agua en este pueblo.
