La Caldera de Taburiente National park

La Caldera del Taburiente is one of Spain´s top National Parks. Its name refers to a Caldera or volcanic crater caused by a violent eruption. This, however, does not seem to be the case of La Caldera de Taburiente! Located in the isle of La Palma

The Caldera is La Palma’s top tourist attraction for good reasons. It is so massive that a local tale described the creation of Tenerife as a result of the explosion of La Caldera de Taburiente. Tales aside, the Caldera seems to be the result of erosion on a series of volcanic cones. Erosion has merged those cones together.
