The Caldera, a peculiar natural space…
La Caldera was a common pasture for grazing the herds of the aboriginal inhabitants of La Palma, before the arrival of the conquistadors.
The great abundance of water, as well as an orography that facilitated the natural enclosure of the goat herds, allowed the Benahorites’ livestock to remain grazing at a time when food was scarce in other parts of the island.
However, La Palma was finally conquered in 1493. The new settlers considered water to be the most valuable element. The Caldera was left in the hands of private landowners who dedicated it to the exploitation of its resources. Very soon the water was channelled to be used for the incipient cultivation of sugar cane. Later, it was the tobacco plantations that received the liquid element. But today it is the cultivation of bananas that benefits from this flow. And in its interior, haciendas were set up so that their labourers could sleep in the Caldera de Taburiente.
Iconic places of the Caldera
Viewpoint of Los Brecitos
Natural entrance to the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. It can be reached via a tarmac track, ascending to 1050 metres above sea level. From there, the PR LP 13 trail begins, which descends gently into the interior of the Caldera.
Tenerra houses & Taburiente houses
Close to Los Brecitos you’ll find the Tenerra houses. The Taburiente houses are close to the camping area. Both are semi-abandoned and were former tobacco plantations in the past.
Lomo del Tagasaste viewpoint
Spectacular viewpoint with an extraordinary visual angle where you can contemplate the entire cirque of peaks that make up the Caldera. This viewpoint is located about 25 minutes from the start of the route.
Round Stones (Piedras Redondas) Ravine
The Piedras Redondas (Round Stones) are located in the middle of the route, just beyond the Mirador del Lomo del Tagasaste viewpoint. They are huge blocks of conglomerate material that were broken off by erosion.
9 Fat Pines (Pinos Gordos)
Centennial pines that have survived a multitude of fires and felling over the years. Some of them, with trunks whose diameter exceeds several metres and heights of up to 40 metres. You have to go a little off the path to reach them.
Sleeping in the Caldera de Taburiente
The Camping Area is the permitted place to stay overnight. However, it is necessary to apply for a permit, as there is a limited number of places to camp.
Monolithic phallic-shaped boulder with great symbolic value for the natives of La Palma. In ancient times the Benahorites prayed to it and worshipped it. It was believed that if this monolith collapsed, great calamities would befall the island.
Possibly one of the most emblematic places in the Caldera. But it is a waterfall of artificial origin. It is the pigmentations on the stones, with different colours, that have given it its name and popularity.
Of very ancient volcanic origin, these large rocks were formed in the seabed. And as the island has emerged from the sea, these geological formations have been exposed.
