  • Worth a visit, in 15 minutes you are on the viewpoint in the crater. It was blowing very hard and that gave an extra exciting dimension to this walk. The entrance fee of € 5.0-I find (given the overall price level of La Palma) to the reasonably high side. There is no discount for pensioners.

  • 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.
