Volcan de San Antonio, Fuencaliente de la Palma

3.9
#2 of 21 in Parks in La Palma
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.

  • It was a day of hiking route when visit you. The island is generally spectacular and seems that here life smiles at you while walking through the island. I fell in love with the Palm.

  • All very nice altogether. From the exhibition to the volcano, where you can very well see a volcano

  • Certainly, the weather must be the view of la Gomera. We did not have this luck here (the mist was there).

  • There is a small visitor center at the start. It tells you how volcanoes exist, where they are and when the last eruption in la palma has been. After that you can go and talk a short walk to the other end of the volcano so you can have an idea of how large the volcano is. Entree fee was 5€ per person including parking. If you are interested in the type of places then it is well worth it for you
  • Verry nice walk (7km) from the crater to the sea (salt pans). Take bus back to the village or visitor center. (Bus table at tourist center)
  • great vieuw but the entrance fee is a bit high for what you get
  • A big hill with a hole. That's about it. Not really worth your 5 euros entrance fee. Stunning views on the surrounding area, however, make it worth the while.
  • Had to pay in (€5), nothing special. Park just outside and do part of the public trail down to the salt pans (can't remember the Spanish name) just as good and free.
