Caldera de Taburiente, La Palma

This caldera must be the largest crater in the planet caused by erosion. Its peak is about 2’500 meters above sea level and its center depression is about 1’200 meters in which the water from the river flows into the sea.

It is located in the Canary Island of La Palma and it became a National Park in 1954. Geologists estimate the origin of this caldera to be about 2 million years and it was still an active volcano at that time! The flora and the fauna are very rich and it is a wonderful place for climbing and hiking.

“Fire creates, water destroys” the volcano was destroyed by erosion and was the end of the battle between these two elements.
