Photographer's Note

Arriving Masca by car but leaving by feet!
We trekked the beautiful but hard trail from the village down to the beach on the Atlantic Ocean, through the gorge. The trail is a popular, though strenuous, hiking route, which takes about 3 hours. Next morning my muscles were stiff and painful but all was worth of trekking.

The photo is not the best one because of the contrast of shadows and bright sunlight but anyway I like the atmosphere of the area.

Masca is a small mountain village on the island of Tenerife. The village is home to around 80 inhabitants. The village lies at an altitude of 600 m in the Teno mountains, which extend up to the northwesternmost point of Tenerife. Until the 1960s the village 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.
