Anaga Massif (Spain)

Anaga Massif (Spain)

Anaga Located at the northeastern corner of the island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, this mountain range, from a geological and landscape point of view, makes up a highly contrasted area in comparison to the rest of the island, with the notable abruptness of its orography, where human actions have fostered truly unique agricultural landscapes. It is home to substantial floral richness and a wide diversity of reptiles, birds, fish, mammals and especially a large amount of invertebrate species, several of which are endemic. In the land sector, highlights include coastal xeric scrublands, “monteverde” or laurel forest and macaronesian thermophilic forests.
In the sea area, we primarily find sandy and rocky bottom ecosystems and
beaches.
