The Caldera de Taburiente National Park is a huge crater surrounded by volcanic peaks lined with streams and waterfalls and peppered with pine groves. One of the most popular ways to experience the park is to hike one of its many trails, though you can also just drive up one its peaks like El Roque de los Muchachos. Either way, you should make a stop at the El Paso Visitors Center to plan out your trip.
One TripAdvisor user was adamant in her recommendation of this national park: "The scenery is awe-inspiring, nature at its finest. Words cannot do it justice, pictures cannot do it justice. You have to see it for yourself."
You'll find the national park at the center of La Palma. The park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and admission is free. For more information, visit Spain's tourism website.
