The Pijaral – Rural Park Of Anaga 🌺
The Integral Natural Reserve of Pijaral in Tenerife constitutes a place with important environmental values, as it houses one of the best samples of the laurel forest on the island.
This place protected by regional regulations is located on the northern slope of the Macizo de Anaga. With an area of 300 hectares within the municipal area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, it is characterized by steep slopes and large slopes populated with a dense vegetation cover, mainly based on laurel forest.
The Pijaral Integral Natural Reserve sits on an area caused by the accumulation of many volcanic materials.
It is made up primarily of the monteverde, that is to say, numerous specimens of laurel forest and fayal-heath among which it has numerous endemisms. Some rare and threatened species stand out, such as elderberry (Sambucus palmensis), asparagus (Asparagus fallax), bush oleander (Euphorbia mellifera) and Anaga violet (Viola anagae). However, the main protagonist of this ecosystem is a plant species called pjara (Woodwardia radicans). The pjara is a fern that can widely exceed two meters.
It is one of the wonders of the Anaga Rural Park, the Integral Natural Reserve of El Pijaral.
