The Timanfaya National Park is the only national park of the Spanish Network of National Parks that is eminently geological and represents a sampling of recent and historical volcanism in the Macaronesian region. The volcanic eruptions that occurred between 1730 and 1736, and in 1824, gave rise to numerous structures of high volcanological interest. The absence of a mantle of vegetation, the extreme roughness of the forms and the variety of colours that exist (red, brown, beige, black and orange) next to the silhouette of the volcanoes and the abrupt coast, give the park an extraordinary beauty.
