Timanfaya National Park
UNESCO designated the Timanfaya volcanic field a national park in 1993. The 200 square kilometre area affords an interesting geological phenomena and contains 180 types of plants. Only ten meters below, in the Earth’s interior, the temperature reaches 600 degrees Celsius! Timanfaya is a living laboratory for biological research. The area was completely destroyed by repeated volcanic eruptions between 1730 and 1736, and later in 1824. Not surprisingly, one of the peaks is called Fire Mountain.
