Valley of a thousand palms
Haría is well-known for its beautiful views as well as palm trees making it incredibly popular with walkers and mountain bikers who take advantage of the many paths in the area.
Historically two palms were planted for every boy born and one for every girl, making the valley the most dense concentration of Canarian palms in the world.
Haria lies nestled in the aptly named Valley of 1,000 Palms which is surrounded by the island’s tallest mountain range – the Risco de Famara, which stands at around 670 metres at it’s highest point.
This location begins to explain why the region stays so green, as the altitude attracts cloud and overnight condensation from which the plant life below can draw water.
