This is one of the most iconic views from La Palma. Unfortunately to record it I had to use the back end of the tele lens zoom, hence the quality is sub-optimal. Nevertheless, I am very proud to have it in my collection. It presents the Teneguia Volcano as seen from Mirador Volcán de San Antonio. However more precisely Teneguia is just one of the vents of a larger volcano called Cumbre Vieja.

Teneguía is a monogenetic cinder cone – a vent which has been active once and is considered as being unlikely to become active in the future. It is situated on the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands and is located at the southern end of the sub-aerial section of the Cumbre Vieja volcano of which Teneguía is just one of several vents. This vent is the source of the last subaerial volcanic eruption in Spain, which occurred from October 26 to November 28, 1971.
