Icod is a hybrid of 12 houses between a block of apartments and detached houses with garden.But this is only a consequence. What explain it are 2 singularities. One its territorial geolocation and another be promoted by a local private initiative.  Save this picture!© Esaú AcostaTenerife is a hilly island in the Atlantic with a population of about 500 inhabitants per km2, but with a very high rate of land occupation with low density being ripe to oversaturate and to overwhelm its sustainability. The promotion comes from a neighbor on a family plot few meters close to his house and awareness of the island situation.
