  • Extremely interesting to see inside the crater and watch fresh growth take root there. Winds blow you off your socks and the views in any direction are absolutely stunning.  more »
  • Leave the car in the parking lot very close to where the path starts that runs along the crater of the volcano. The facilities are mimetised with the environment. Are simple and in its interior you report audiovisually of the spot and the history of this part of the island and its volcanoes. Simple and very educational. The road that borders the crater is safe and enjoying wonderful views. The hillside with vineyards that reach the sea. More banana under white fabrics and the Teneguía volcano a little further down. Is can see perfectly the "enlargement" of lava in the coast. Inside the volcano there are pine trees that give you a curious and color appearance. If the day is clear the islands of el Hierro and La Gomera, as well as the coast you can see up to Los Llanos. A real adventure to go by this volcano. Must-see

  • 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.
