terraces
Explanation:
Andenes are terraces used for agriculure in the Canary Islands, as a means of cultivating steep slopes.
In agriculture, a terrace is a piece of sloped plane that has been cut into a series of successively receding flat surfaces or platforms, which resemble steps, for the purposes of more effective farming . This type of landscaping, therefore, is called terracing.

Anden, Spanish for "platform",[1] is a stair-step like terrace dug into the slope of a hillside for agricultural purposes.
