On the highest elevation of the secluded village, the mountain La Centinela, a stiff breeze blows – from here you can look deep into the Barranco de La Luz gorge. Crystal-clear natural pools are located on the cliffs. To get to the unique surroundings of Juan Adalid between the Barranco de Magdaleno and Barranco de Domingo Díaz gorges, you need an all-terrain car with four-wheel drive or two feet that like to hike: the path to the cliffs takes about 40 minutes. The area was once used for agriculture; spurge plants and especially ruby-red prickly pears, the "tunos indios", grow along the path.
