The Jandia is one of the three main edifices identified in the Old Basaltic Series of Fuerteventura. It shows now a semicircular shape with a nortwards facing opening. This large volcano built up by lava flows and pyroclastics corresponding to three successive subseries: Lower, Medium and Upper Series all separated by unconformities. The jandia Lower Series is probably equivalent to the Lower Series which has been identified in the Central Edifice farther to the north-east. A fourth period of activity (Late Series) which formed a low table land, took place west of the present semicircular edifice.
