"Anaga is the fairyland of the Canary Islands"
The Anaga area is one of the three original islands - next to Teno & Adeje - which grew together to the present island of Tenerife. Over the years in geological terms, the region eroded and created the breathtaking ruggedness, the deep valleys and striking peaks of the mountains today. The flora of this region varies between foggy laurel and heather forests and mostly succulent vegetation on the south side of the mountains. Due to its poor accessibility, the Anaga Mountains are still the most untouched piece of earth on Tenerife. The people who live here still live in their unique traditions in living caves, sparse agriculture and the belief in witches and spirits of the forest.
