Although there are other
volcanic areas in Spain, the
Canary Islands are the only
Spanish region with active
volcanoes.
Several theories try
to explain the origin
of the Canary
Islands. One of the
most accepted is the
Hot Spot theory.

The Canary Islands are
not a sismic area.
Earthquakes are very
unusual and their
intensity is low
But before eruptions,
earthquakes take
place and they are
felt in most parts of
the archipelago.

  • 7. OTHER HISTORICAL ERUPTIONS. TIMANFAYA, LANZAROTE The most important eruption on the Canary Islands, in historical time, took place in Lanzarote from 1730 to 1736. A fourth part of the island was affected. Today is a National Park.
  • 8. OTHER HISTORICAL ERUPTIONS: ARENAS NEGRAS VOLCANO. GARACHICO In 1706, in the Northern coast of Tenerife, the lava from Arenas Negras volcano flew towards the town of Garachico, which was partially destroyed as well as its harbour.
  • 9. EL TEIDE NATIONAL PARK. TENERIFE El Teide is the highest mountain in Spain with its 3718 meters above sea level. It’s a huge volcano located in Tenerife. In 1954, El Teide and its surrounding area was declared National Park to preserve its geology, flora and fauna. Despite of being near the Tropic of Cancer, seasonal changes can be observed in El Teide.
  • 10. EL TEIDE NATIONAL PARK El Teide rises from a circular caldera located about 2000 meter above sea level. Crater of El Teide and a view of the Central mountain range, 1400 meters below.
  • 11. VOLCANIC LANDSCAPES OF GRAN CANARIA Gran Canaria is one of the oldest islands (about 14.000.000 years old). For that reason, there aren´t important volcanic areas. Erosion is the most important geological actor, for millions of years, water and wind have erased most of the old volcanic structures.
  • 12. VOLCANIC AREAS OF LA ISLETA AND BANDAMA. GRAN CANARIA La Isleta, beside the town of Las Palmas, is one of the few preserved volcanic areas in Gran Canaria. Today is a Special Wildlife Park protected by law. Caldera of Bandama is another protected volcanic area in Gran Canaria. It’s supposed to have been the last volcanic eruption in Gran Canaria, about 2000 years ago.
  • 13. JAMEOS DEL AGUA. LANZAROTE CUEVA DE LOS VERDES. LANZAROTE VOLCANIC CAVES. LANZAROTE Lanzarote has got many important volcanic structures, two of them are these two caves. Both were created by underground currents of lava while the roof of the cave became solid rock due to the contact with air.
  • 14. TENEGUÍA VOLCANIC AREA. LA PALMA Teneguía is the last volcano which emerged after its eruption in 1971. The combined action of lava and other volcanic materials has created the most recent landcapes of the Canary Islands and Spain.
