Jameos del agua y Cueva de los verdes

 

Jameos del Agua and Cueva de los Verdes are part of a big lava tube that born in the volcano La Corona, and it’s one of the largest lava caves in the world and the longest underwater lava cave in the world

The Cueva de los Verdes is an adapted cave for all the publics, with illumination and walking paths. You can admire the lava formations and realize that one day in the past the cave was liquid and long tie after closer to our time, the cave was used by humans as shelter.

In the actual time there are seismological studies in the cave, touristic activity and thanks to the amazing acoustic that the lava rock has, you can also listen some music concerts.

Jameo is the local designation to the entrances of the cave in the Canary Islands, in other places like Yucatan they call it Cenote and in technical term is a Karstic window. The Jameos del Aguas are two big openings in the cave ceiling letting this way the light into the cavern area.

This place was adapted by Manrique and now is a beautiful place to visit and enjoy with the enormous cavern area, the healthy vegetation and the sun light effects, also it has a museum where you will find information about the Canary Islands formation and the world volcanic activity.

In this place lives a unique animal in the planet, is call “Jameito” thanks to the location is found and is like a little white lobster. It has been adapted to live in this cave, so that’s why the animal is white and blind.

There is a lot of advertisement about throwing coins in the water, is totally forbidden because they damage the Jameitos. Some people thinks that the main pool in the Jameos del Agua is “ magic” and throw coins on it, but it affects to the house of this little unique animal. Thanks for comprehension
