This Dorsal Range emerged as the highest and the longest volcanic structure in the Canary Islands; it was 1, metres 5, feet high and 25 kilometres 16 miles long. As this accumulation approached the surface of the water, gases erupted from the magma due to the reduction of the surrounding pressure.
These mountains have been created due to basaltic fissural volcanism through one of the axis that gave birth to the vulcanism of this area. The most unusual landscape of this massif is found on its southern coast, where the Acantilados de Los Gigantes "Cliffs of the Giants" present vertical walls reaching heights of metres 1, feet in some places.

Underwater fissural eruptions originated from the pillow lavawhich are produced by the rapid cooling of the magma when it comes in contact with water, obtaining their peculiar shape.
A known formation called Los Azulejos, composed by green-tinted rocks were created by hydrothermal processes.
Due to the age of its material 5. This pillow-lava accumulated, constructing the base of the island underneath the sea.
Those opposed to the conquest fought the invaders tenaciously, resisting their rule for two years. Four years later, inanother group left that founded San Antonio the following year in what became Texas.

Emigration to the Americas mainly Cuba and Venezuela continued during the 19th and early 20th century, due to the lack of economic opportunity and the relative isolation of the Canary Islands.
