The Caldera de Taburiente is one of the largest erosion craters in the world. It is located right in the centre of the island, made up of a circle of mountains nearly 2,500 metres high. The highest peaks drop vertically up to 1000 metres into the crater.
Within the crater, we find brooks, waterfalls, gullies and a wide variety of plants and flowers. The Caldera de Taburiente in La Palma has a diameter of 9 km and a perimeter of about 27 km. Its special relief gives the crater a sunny, windless climate almost all year round. In 1954, it was declared a National Park.
After crossing the Barranco de Las Angustias Gorge, a winding path leads us to Los Brecitos (1040 metres above sea level).
First part: From here, a well-kept track leads gently down to the "Camping Area". Las Casas de Tenerra and Casas de Taburiente are the only inhabited settlements and their abandoned terraces are evidence of a flourishing agriculture of yesteryear. There are still some families that continue to live here, looking after their masters` properties In the Camping Area, on the banks of the Taburiente River, we find an ideal spot for enjoying the splendid scenery around us.
Second part: On the other side of the stream, our path heads for the Barranco del Almendro Amargo Gorge and descends sharply to the Barranco de Las Angustias Gorge. We spend the last two hours of our hike walking along this gorge. Water erosion has exposed layers of rock of different composition that are interspersed with pillow lava from underwater eruptions. Throughout this stretch, we are accompanied by the brook, which forms small pools of crystal clear water and lovely waterfalls from time to time
