FloraFlora and fauna
Euphorbias of the Canaries (Euphorbia canariensis), junipers Phoenicia (Juniperus phoenicea) and dragon trees (Dracaena draco), which are as always scarce, encamped on the most inaccessible rocks (as in the case of Roque de las Animas) are also interesting elements of the flora of this site. This region is also of great interest regarding its wildlife as it is home to many species of birds, especially seabirds that nest there. There are also traditional traces of human presence with many terraced fields and picturesque villages.

The coast and the edge of the massif are dotted with interesting sights of the natural point of view and landscape. Among them, the Roques de Anaga (de Tierra y de Fuera) are testimonials from erosion and they are the refuge of botanical endemic species and seabirds abound where archaeological remains.
