Description

By cutting the island in its entire thickness, the Caldera will allow us to understand its geological history and that of the island of La Palma. Through its trails we will get to know the endemic species that make up its flora, with the Canariensis Pine as the protagonist, the main plant formation of the Park; and its fauna, mainly represented by birds such as the Red-billed Chough (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax barbarus Vaurie) the animal symbol of the island, the kestrel, the raven or the hawk. 

We will be surprised by the presence of water, with exuberant streams, impressive waterfalls and natural pools where you can take a refreshing bath. We will tell the history and legends of the ancient inhabitants of the island, the Auaritas and, in particular, of Tanausù, the last aboriginal king of the island who was taken prisoner by the Spanish settlers. And finally we will understand the importance and the way to preserve a unique and more sensitive environment day after day.
