There where La Palma comes to an end, at its southernmost point, a black and white man-made landscape appears between the lava flows of the San Antonio and Teneguía volcanoes. This area is classified as a Natural Area of
Scientific Interest due to the large number of ornithologists and botanists who visit the Fuencaliente Salinas.
These are clay and lava rectangles in which the Atlantic waters evaporate, leaving behind the best of their essence, the salt, which is dried by the Trade Winds, turning it into a natural product of the very best quality.
