  • It is imperative if you go to the South of this "isla bonita" to go to the visiting Center to watch the movie that will teach you bcp on the volcanoes of the Palma.Ensuite in little "relaxed" mode works on the crest of the San Antonio! and breathtaking views of the Teneguía and salt.. .the everything under ocean background.

  • This volcano has an already impressive crater. The entrance fee is 5 euros, but who has never looked down the throat of a crater while, for the, the expenditure worthwhile. The crater rim is up and at the end, he offers a beautiful view over the neighbouring islands of El Hierro and Gomera.

  • Great views! Easy to reach. The LP2 from El Paso to the volcano is very nice.

  • The adjacent Museum is a typical volcano Museum, as seen from other volcanoes, but very nicely done. For those who like gadgets, there's even a virtual, body-driven flight over the area. The Outlook is indescribably beautiful and from the volcano crater.

  • Currently, the visitor center shows a very interesting exhibition about the volcanism in the Canary Islands.
