Until the 60th Masca was conected to Santiago del Teide only with a small sand-street, but in the meanwhile a normal street has been built, connecting the small town with Santiago del Teide and Buenavista.

In the center of the village there is a small square with a church and there are different parts of the township spread over the different hillsides of the "Montes del Teno". Until the end of the 20th century the people living in Masca cultivated the best potatoes, onions and garlic of the Island.
