Isla de La Palma


ES |


There is a theory that a part of the island of La Palma can slip in the sea during the next volcanic eruption and cause a huge tsunami at the east coast of North America and aprts of Europe.

In 1815, the great German geologist Leopold von Buch visited the Canary Islands. It was as a result of his visit to La Palma and Tenerife where he visited the Las Cañadas and Taburiente calderas, that the Spanish word for cauldron - "Caldera" - was introduced into the geological vocabulary.
