Las Cañadas | Lava flow

Las Cañadas represent a complex system of ancient shield- and stratovolcanoes, having experienced collapses due to emptying of the magma chamber or giant landsliding. The bottom of the caldera has been reshaped by more recent volcanic activity. The summit of the Montaña de Guajara (2718 m) appears in the right central background.
