Barranco de Las Angustias

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.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
