The Caldera de Taburiente is one of the fifteen national parks in Spain and a very important tourist and natural resource of the island. It is a huge depression of 1,500 meters of slope with a diameter of almost 8 kilometers, which opens to the southwest area through the deep Barranco de Las Angustias. It was formed by large-scale landslides through multiple volcanic eruptions over the centuries and declared a National Park in 1954 as a place of unique geological conditions. In addition to its impressive landscapes, it also exhibits a great variety of endemic species of plants and animals.

You can access the Caldera by car from Los Llanos de Aridane to Barranco de Las Angustias and walk from there upwards or, alternatively, take a taxi service to Los Brecitos, where a beautiful descending route of about 6 hours, 14 kilometers and medium difficulty begins (the estimated price of the taxi is €15,00).
