JFDELACRUZ/20MINUTOS there where the hills and forests earn him heading to the topical beaches which also there are beautiful black sand. La Isla Bonita, call it: meeting point of Earth, fire, water and wind. Of the free will of the more spontaneous work of volcanic pottery, was born a fertile Symphony of the elements, a Canarian delight for the senses. So La Palma. A meeting point for Earth, fire, water and wind. A biosphere reserve since its crystalline basement until his breezy roof. And also a window to the universe thanks to its futuristic telescopes, up to nine, taking advantage of its clean skies and the particularities of an enclave like Roques of the boys. La Isla Bonita, call it.
And they say that only the islands of Pico, Azores, and Fogo, Cape Verde, are ahead in the maximum height reached in relation to its surface. Here, 708.32 km is 2,425 metres. But the truth is that in La Palma, the abyss, the curveos and the slopes relativize the rush and they encourage the dizziness. The Strip and tug-of-war between eruptions and erosion several, what better example, la Caldera de Taburiente, intimidating by that wall up to 1,000 meters of fall that separates the lower area of the mountainous circus that, between 1,700 and 2,400 meters above sea level, around it during almost thirty kilometers in a geological hint of circumference. Ah, the art of those shepherds who devoraban their trails, now up, now down, saving uneven armed with a sturdy stick! From the viewpoint of the platforms, the world is at our feet if the clouds, Sergeant-at-arms, are not trapped inside. Without a doubt, a natural wonder that is National Park since 1954.
Two lighthouses brothers in the West, by the payments of Los Llanos de Aridane, find the most benign terrain. Of the 80,000 inhabitants of La Palma, are concentrated here nearly 21,000, about 4,000 more than the registered in the capital, Santa Cruz de la Palma, in the East. The rest is split between its other twelve municipalities. The set of los Llanos, a transition from the mountain up to the sea that sends the Green agricultural holdings (primarily of bananas) and the Barranco de las Angustias makes natural drain, well worth a look in the viewpoint of the Time. And not very far toward the South, or Yes, given the twisty roads, is the tip of Fuencaliente, in whose recent volcanic environment survive a few traditional salinas and two headlights almost neighbors. Their coexistence was born after the last volcanic eruption, that of the Teneguia in 1971, that threatened the old work of 1903. The tsunami of BBC statistics, and locals such as musical accent, they say that nobody has died ever different eruptions lived on an island volcanically active. The BBC, in 2000, warned in a documentary the island, by a fault which does exist, will leave and would cause a huge tsunami that America would play in hours. A very future possibility of so many.
