Masca, Tenerife

I bought these cards on our vacation in Tenerife in December 2013.

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. Some of the homes are abandoned. Many of its inhabitants have left for larger towns and cities on Tenerife and on other islands and for Spain.

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.
