Description

Group of three Canarian camels, a male, a female and a young. They are made from red stone reinforced with iron.

Unveiled 29 April 2015. At the unveiling, Gladys Acuña, the mayor of Yaiza pointed out that these camels "represent the effort of men and women of the countryside that shaped the Protected Landscape of Geria and the work of the camel drivers of Uga who maintain in Timanfaya their valuable sustainable activity linked to tourism."
