Description

This area incorporates a small section of the west of the Moya ravine where the best examples of faya trees and tree heaths in Gran Canaria can be found. Endemic flora of interest here includes the canary bell flower (Canarina canariensis) or the smilax (Smilax canariensis). Although they are found in other laurel forests on the island, here they are of great conservation value. This space includes forested zones which, due to their special characteristics, contribute to maintaining essential ecological processes such as aquifer replenishment and soil protection.
Location: Santa María de Guía.
Surface area: 107 hectares.
