Nature > Roque del Conde
From the plateau that crowns it, you can enjoy panoramic views of the coasts of Adeje, Arona, San Miguel, Granadilla de Abona, part of Guía de Isora and Santiago del Teide, as well as the island of La Gomera.

The Roque del Conde or “Roque de Ahiyo” path, also known as “Roque de Ichasagua”, is a route that mixes the beauty of the landscape with the history of Tenerife.

This volcanic rock rises to a height of 1,000 meters above sea level, with an ascent of about 2.5 kilometers. It belongs to the Barranco del Infierno Special Nature Reserve.

The paved path begins in the neighbouring municipality of Arona, climbing up the eastern slope of the rock. The path crosses the old farming terraces of El Tablero, once used for cereal cultivation.

The name “Roque de Ichasagua” reminds us of the raised mencey Ichasagua, which resisted the invaders until several years after 1496, the official date of the conquest of Tenerife. According to the chroniclers, he ended his life in the Llano del Rey, now Arona, and stuck his own dagger in it when he discovered the treachery of other Guanche chiefs.
