Not actually formed by a meteor impact like a crater, Caldera de Taburiente National Park looks the part regardless. It measures 10 km (6 mi) across and 2 km (1.25 mi) deep. It has history, too: the indigenous inhabitants of the Canary Islands, the Guanches, made their last stand here. Both pine and the endangered local Juniper form the park’s forest. You’ll find a dozen or more hiking routes crisscrossing the terrain. As always, bring appropriate clothes, plenty of food and water, and inform the park staff if you’re going to attempt a difficult hike. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Gallegos trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Beautiful! Best view on the island! A must see! The drive towards the highest point is also stunning! You can park your car on the parking and walk for about 50 meters on a path towards the viewing point(s). Higest point of La Palma.
One of the best spot in the Canaries, if you're lucky you can see the whole island and the islands around. Free parking. If it's too crowded you have to wait your turn to come up here. However you can spend how much time you want here once arrived.
