Description:
The small picturesque town of Fontanales, is located on the upper north facing slopes of Gran Canariaís north western highlands, an area of the island which receives the greatest precipitation, owing to the prevailing NE trade winds, which bring abundant moisture and cloud cover from the Atlantic Ocean. As a result of this and in contrast to the dry, hot and arid south, this area is very green, with many woodlands and with a huge variety of vegetation. Here there are many species more often found at more northern latitudes; sweet chestnut, apple, pear, eucalyptus, firs, blackberry and ferns, not to mention the myriad wild flowers in spring and early summer. This area is also a very rich agricultural area, where much of the islandís potatoes, carrots and corn crops come from.
