This route is the last stage of the well-known “Route of the Volcanoes”.
Our tour starts in Los Canarios (Fuencaliente), where very close to the town is the first volcano we will see on this route: the San Antonio volcano.
This large volcanic crater is located at an altitude of about 600 metres above sea level, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view. The San Antonio volcano erupted in 1677 and has been a characteristic site for the municipality ever since.
The trail descends the slopes of this volcano until we reach its base and approach the next volcano on our route on a comfortable path: the Teneguía volcano, which erupted in 1971. The striking Roque Teneguía will not go unnoticed either, as its bright colour stands out clearly against the black landscape that surrounds it.
The path takes us closer to the volcanic cone of Teneguía, which has a different morphology from the large crater of the previous volcano. This was the last eruption in Spain until September 2021, when a still unnamed volcano in the Cumbre Vieja volcanic area erupted again.
We walk along the slopes of the Teneguía volcano, meandering through the sparse coastal vegetation that has survived on the young terrain, until we reach the end of our path: the Fuencaliente lighthouse. The lighthouse is located next to the equally famous salt flats of Fuencaliente. Currently, they are the only salt works still in operation in the province of S/C in Tenerife. They produce 600 tons of high quality sea salt annually, obtained in an artisanal and 100% ecological way.
La Palma, “Bonita” from north to south and although it has recently become known for a volcano, but there are also other volcanoes worth seeing ?
