A trip to the Moon

The impressive fields of solidified lava that make up this island convert Timanfaya into the land of the volcanoes.

Different volcanic eruptions and magma activity throughout its history, make this land what it is today. From the nature viewpoint of Montaña Rajada you can admire a vast sea of lava that reaches the coastline. Particularly impressive are: the undulations, strident forms created by the lava...Since then its inhabitants have learned to live alongside this unusual and pretty landscape, and have even dry farmed melons, onions, tomatoes and also vines in La Geria.

In the first, dominated by a lunar landscape, appear different environmental features, such as cones of volcanic origin. sea of lava, 'tabaibal' (old areas not covered by recent lava and in which vegetation abounds), crops, beaches and cliffs. The formations found in the marine ecosystem are: geysers and hot springs, rocks, black sandy beaches and flat rocks. In this exceptional landscape, numerous species have developed adaptational processes that have been the subject of many studies.
