Around the Caldera


Previous Home Up Next

The shape of La Palma resembles a question mark, with a rim of mountains and volcanoes around the volcanic crater 'Caldera'. Often you will drive through the clouds before reaching the sunny rim.

From the rim you can see other islands. The Pico de Teide at Tenerife is easy to spot, more to the south you can sometimes see Gomera and El Hierro.

The rim is a visit worth when you like beautiful pictures of rocks and when you like to have a broad view.

The view on La Plama is so good, that astronomers from several countries have built their buildings to look at the stars.
