Geopark Visitor Centre

The island of El Hierro and its volcanoes
El Hierro is the youngest of the Canary Islands. It is also the island with the greatest volcanic activity. The visitor centre, accessed along the road to La Restinga, has two buildings: one of which takes an overview of Canarian volcanism and the volcanoes of El Hierro, while the other uses optical and sonic effects to reimagine the volcanic eruption of October 2011 that occurred underwater in the area around La Restinga.
Experience an underwater eruption
Visitors to the Geoparc Centre will understand how a volcanic island is formed. Through the use of the latest technology, interactive exhibits illuminate volcanic landscapes and enable an immersive, first-hand volcano experience which lets people encounter an underwater eruption and learn about ocean-borne lava flows.
