Volcano Nature / Park
Rising 650 m (2,132 ft) above sea level, Volcan de San Antonio provides a striking reminder of the Canary Islands’ volcanic and geological legacy. Hike along the rim of the crater for views of the ocean and surrounding island terrain, as well as the nearby mountaintop village of Fuencaliente. Explore the signposted paths and viewing areas along the way. Visit the site’s visitors’ center for information about the island’s formation and the history of the volcano, which last erupted in 1677. Grab a traditional Spanish cafe con leche at the center’s cafe and gift shop. Parking is available at the site, which can also be reached by public transportation. The crater trek can occasionally be uneven and bumpy, so those with mobility problems should exercise caution.
