| The Caldera de Taburiente (Caldera de Taburiente)|
|The Caldera de Taburiente is a huge depression (one of the world’s largest of its kind) of erosive origin.|
The Caldera is surrounded by a circus of summits 8 km in diameter peaks are among the highest of the island: the Roque de los Muchachos (2426 m), the Pico de la Cruz (2351 m), Piedra Llana (2321 m), the Pico de la Nieve (2236 m), the Punta de los Roques (2085 m), and so on. You can visit two dormant craters: La Cumbrecita and Los Muchachos.
From the ridge, the ground dips to within the Caldera, creating steep cliffs, at least 800 m high. In their lowest point, they reach an altitude of 430 m above sea level, causing elevations of about 2000 m.
The park hosts a Astrophysical Observatory.
