Teneguía Volcanos Natural Monument

Teneguía Volcanos Natural Monument is located in the southern part of the island. It is composed of materials emitted during historical volcanic eruptions of San Antonio in 1677 and Teneguía in 1971. San Antonio Volcano remained active during 66 days, whilst Teneguía’s had an active period of 24 days. From both eruptions huge lava rivers emerged which reached the sea. None of these two filterings hided in full the old materials on the place, emerging in areas such as Roques de Teneguía (Teneguía Rooks).
Most of lava and lapilli fields surface lacks vegetation, even though the oldest materials are the place for disperse samphires (Schizogyne sericea) and Canary Island sorrels (Rumex lunaria). Practically in the whole coastal area and the western sector of this natural monument, there are banana plantations, the most extended crop on the island.
