Vega del Rio Palmas


After leaving the village and taking the road Betancuria FV30, Pájara direction, the landscape changes dramatically and we enter a valley (Barranco de la Vega) where abundant variety of native plant species: we are in the valley that includes the locality of Vega de Rio de Palmas.
This area of ​​the island is the one with a greater number of plant and plant is almost an oasis comparing this area with other places of Fuerteventura.
The unusual abundance of trees and shrubs may be because this valley collects all the runoff from various mountain ranges and so can the accumulation of water in the groundwater table, due to the impermeability of igneous rocks that form these mountains.
Next to this village we find one of the few reservoirs in Fuerteventura, the Las Penitas, and a
few feet away, lies the small chapel of the Virgen de la Peña, patron saint of Fuerteventura and even where pilgrimages are made to celebrate the feast of the patron.
From this village, we can go one of the most interesting and beautiful trails of Fuerteventura which leads to the Barranco de las Penitas.
