Caserio-en-anagaThere has been a strong migration from Anaga since the sixties as a result of isolation and, particularly, of the decline of traditional activities, agriculture and livestock, with which the locals could barely survive. The great majority of these people work in urban areas and, conversely, the weekend use of houses and land by people living outside the area who devote their time to a supplementary agricultural activity, especially potatoes and vineyards, are also common.
