Small, typically Canarian village on a mountain slope - a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Photo made during a ride road GC-606 - only 12 km away and drove over an hour. This is probably the most hellish road I was driving - should be called GC-666 :-) You can see this way to the spherical image.
