La Palma - The Volcanic South

In the south, La Palma is at its youngest - and grows furthest into the sea.

The world of the young volcanoes San Antonio (erupted in 1677) and Teneguía (1971) is fascinating. But also the other known eruptions in the last centuries took place here in the south of La Palma: The San Martin erupted in 1646 and the El Charco in 1712.

Between the black lava tongues, the viticulture thrives. 70 percent of the area around Fuencaliente is subject to various forms of nature and landscape conservation. When climbing up from the young volcanic zone in Fuencaliente, to Los Canarios and higher, one encounters the fragrant forests of the Canary Pine.
