Volcán San Antonio La Palma Eruption: A Display of Volcanic Power in Action

Located in the southern part of La Palma, near the village of Canarios, in the municipality of Fuencaliente, Volcán San Antonio is part of the volcanic complex known as Cumbre Vieja Ridge. Standing at 657 meters high, its last eruption occurred in 1677. Today, it’s dormant and covered in vegetation.

Its eruption, which lasted from November 17, 1677, to January 21, 1678, produced basaltic lava flows that covered an area of 6,500,000 square meters, forming the coastal platform in the Punta Larga and Playa Echentive areas. This region was later affected by the Teneguía eruption in 1971.

Despite its dormancy, the volcano remains a popular tourist attraction due to its accessibility and panoramic coastal views, as well as the various outdoor activities nearby. In fact, next to the Visitor Center begins an unforgettable hiking route suitable even for less experienced hikers.
