Human ingenuity has managed to reconquer the lands that had been devastated by the constant volcanic eruptions in the region. The locals discovered the fertile earth beneath the layer of volcanic ash, which is called Picon, and employed to plant vines, particularly of the malvasia grape variety, which gives rise to the famous wines of Lanzarote. Subsequently the Picon is put back on Earth, since it has the property of allowing water seepage and retain the humidity of the environment. Also around the vines were built small walls whose mission is to stop the strong prevailing winds, thus creating a very particular landscape, for example in the area of La Geria.
