Tahiche

Tahiche

The lava flow from the eruptions of 1730 and 1736, which runs around the town of Tahiche, is absolutely spectacular. This black, young lava contrasts with the arid earth and the mountains formed before these eruptions. New buildings have gradually began to spring up, but of all of them the one that stands out the most is the César Manrique Foundation. In Tahíche, the crater of the volcano that gave the town its name rises up before us. It is an imposing form, and depending on the time of year the combination of colours that can be seen on its slopes changes dramatically: reds, ochres, greens and blacks. At the base of this mountain, it is possible to see the different layers of earth, showing off an extremely attractive display of geomorphology and a variety of different textures.
