Slope to Puertito
It is an area with a big slope, continuously lashed by the wind. At the beginning of the trip, isolated houses alternate with dryland crops, mainly sweet potatoes, very much used in this area of the island. Crops soon disappear to leave place for lava fields covered by typical basal-type vegetation. In the final phase of the itinerary, the strong slope allows you to get great panoramic views, highlighting the silhouette of the mountain Azufre in the cut out coast. As an abiotic element, black lava stands out from the Búcaro’s eruption, crossed by the track. The itinerary is rich, in addition, in cultural elements, since to the ethnographic interest of cove-type crops (narrow coves in the area and giving the name to the place) we should add lupini beans drying facilities and wells for tanning purposes at the beach Playa del Puertito.
