We begin our hiking in Lanzarote going  to the village of Mala. There, we make a guided tour about the processes of cultivating the "Tuneras, Nopal or Prickly Pear Cactus", and breeding of cochineal, used to make carmine. From there, we go to Ye, receiving explanations and visiting of the most characteristic features that we find our way, as several natural Jameos. We will make our route of hiking an ascent of "La Corona" volcano, with an estimated age of 21,000 years. "La Corona" formed the lava tunnel that created "Los Jameos del Agua" and "La Cueva de Los Verdes", and is 7.5 km long.
Among other plant species, we find the "Orchilla" or Roccella canariensis, lichen used formerly to produce purple dye, and the whole area called "Tabaibal". One of the most beautiful "Tabaibales" of Canary Islands.
From there, we move to the "Risco de Famara", near the Mirador del Rio, where besides enjoying the views it offers over the archipelago Chinijo , we can enter into numerous batteries of the 2nd World War, but they really were built during the War of Cuba in the XIX century, of Spain versus USA. It`s curious, Right?
