What is it?

Roque de Jama Natural Monument is a geomorphological structure of remarkable topography and typifies the geography of the surrounding area. It is also an extremely beautiful and unique landscape feature  that is, moreover, of significant scientific and geological interest, owing to certain features that are related to the formation of the more ancient sections of the Adeje massif.  The area also contains extensive rock habitats, characterised by the presence of bare rocks devoid of soil.
