The area of Huertas de Sardina, which is where we now are, is one of the most important agricultural areas in the municipality of Valsequillo, with terraced farming lands being highlighted, always limited by the area’s orography.
Self-sufficiency agriculture represents the municipality’s main source of wealth. As is the case with the remaining municipalities of the middlelands, what predominates is production of potatoes, vegetables, cereals, etc., with strawberries and flowers just recently having become important crops. Almond trees hold the starring role in the landscape, thus production of almonds is also worthy of mention.
Livestock raising is also of importance in the local economy, with the resulting products being highly valued at an island level.
From this point it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view of all the municipality’s summits, with the following standing out from left to right: La Mesa Mountain, Roque Grande, Roque del Pino, Roque Saucillo and La Arena Mountain; and in the foreground Huertas de Sardina and La Plata Ravine.
