Artist's Description

Masca is a small mountain village located in Buenavista del Norte on a small mountain road named Masca. The village is home to around 150 inhabitants. The village is in the Teno mountains, which range from 600 to 800 m and extend up to the northwesternmost point of Tenerife. The village in the 1960s was accessed only by paths and was inaccessible by roads. The centre of the village features a small square (plaza) and a small church.

High mountains surround the tiny village and there is a small peak near the village centre. Forests including cypresses and palm trees abound. The rocks and forests and a slope of about 70° to 75° angle lies westward. Farming cultivation include potatoes and wheat and also fruit and vegetables in small quantities. The village has a sufficient water supply and plants are green.

The island of La Gomera and the Atlantic Ocean can be seen beyond the valley and footpath leading down to the sea.
