Barranco de Las Angustias

Barranco de Las Angustias on La Palma

A fabulous natural space – perfect for hiking

The protected landscape of Barranco de Las Angustias covers four municipalities on La Palma: El Paso, Tijarafe, Los Llanos de Aridane and Tazacorte. This incredible natural space with enormous scenic value borders the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. The ravine starts at the area known as Dos Aguas, where the permanent streams from the caldera merge together: a fabulous place to go hiking due to its extraordinary beauty and uniqueness. Along the way, visitors will be able to see the Shrine to Nuestra Señora de Las Angustias – who is highly venerated on the island.

Discover the beauty of the Cascada de Colores

The Barranco de Las Angustias fascinates everyone who visits it. The abrupt landscape makes it one of the best places in Canary Islands for extreme sports, but it is also perfect for some hiking. This extraordinary natural space is characterised by its impressive sheer cliffs covered with vegetation, in addition to the beautiful imagery of lush forests of Canary Islands Pine – a species that is endemic to the islands. There is a reward for going deeper into the ravine: you can discover the famous Cascada de Colores (coloured waterfall). You are advised to take something to eat and some water with you and wear suitable footwear.
