On the arid south of the island of Tenerife, treasures you may never have imagined are hidden in little-known spots. This is a private journey into the land of volcanoes, where each of these geological formations reveals information, and where life has learnt to adapt itself perfectly between lava fields and breathtaking wastelands.
