La Caldera de Taburiente National Park
La Caldera de Taburiente National Park – located 1 ½ hours (45 km) northwest of Santa Cruz, La Caldera de Taburiente National Park, due to its impressive landscape beauty, is one of the most emblematic and important touristic resources of La Palma Island. It is a 1,500 meter enormous slope depression with a diameter of almost 8 km, opening to the southwestern area through the deep Barranco de Las Angustias. It was declared National Park in the year 1954 for being a place of unique geological conditions and it also exhibits a high percentage of exclusive flora and fauna on the island.
The water coming from La Caldera has undoubtedly been its most valuable wealth, and more than 400 years ago, logging was prohibited through the Heritage of Argual and Tazacorte Farms, aware of the role of trees therein existing and their good conservation condition. Free admission.
