Chinyero

Natural area located in the north of Tenerife

Chinyero
On the 18th of November 1909, the Chinyero began to erupt. During the following nine days, this volcano situated on the side of the Teide Peak continued its volcanic activity terrorising the local population, although there were no deaths. It was the last eruption to take place on Tenerife.  Today, the traces of that event in the shape of lava flows make up an extraordinarily beautiful, arid, volcanic landscape.
