The town of Adeje in Tenerife. Barranco del Infierno. Click to enlarge the image.The Barranco del Infierno (the "gorge of hell”) is a ravine to the point of which flows into the largest waterfall Valley Tenerife, which feeds water from the source of El Roque Abinque.

The short hike begins in the town of Adeje. The hiking trail, well appointed, starts at about 200 m from the ravine and goes to the side of the mountain on the southwest side. The path is not difficult, because it has a width of about 1 m; in the steep passages is secured by wooden stakes.

Spectacular waterfall, the dragon clinging to the cliffs or the hygrophilous vegetation are all of interest to this hike.

Strombolian volcano Crater King (Caldera del Rey)
The natural monument of the Caldera del Rey, close to tourist urbanisations of Las Américas, could not escape their destructive effects. However, it is a protected area formed by a maar (type of volcanic edifice produced by phreato-magmatic activity) even where there was a specific microclimate.
Other Interests
Other protected areas of Adeje are the cliffs (Alcantilados de Adeje), or the ravine Barranco de Erques and Alcantilados Costeros and part of the forest crown.
