LZ15 Timbaiba


Montaña de Timbaiba is a horseshoe-shaped volcanic cone, formed during the fissure eruption in the Middle Pleistocene. This building was constructed over a wind sand dune from the Pleistocene. There are two dune systems separated by a paleosol and by two pyroclastic deposits during the Timbaiba eruption. On the oldest dune there are fossils, such [...]

LZ19 Las Calderetas


This geosite includes the surface of the volcanic cone of La Caldereta formed during the Lower Pleistocene. The vastness of its lava flows during the eruption that took place between 1730 and 1736, resulted in a large lava area; only locally, the existence of previous mountain ranges, mainly volcanic cones, posed an obstacle to the [...]

LZ20 Lomos de San Andrés y Camacho


This geosite is a clear example of the interference between the volcanic construction processes and the sedimentation of wind sands on the island of Lanzarote, which in this case has favoured the creation of convergent relief shapes, whose conic shape and pyroclastic materials on the surface, mainly lapilli, has caused for them to be interpreted [...]

LZ22 Los Ancones


The powerful lava flows of Los Ancones from the pleistocene volcanic cone of Montaña Corona, reached the old coastline and got into the sea, forming one of the most pronounced capes on the eastern coast of Lanzarote. Its situation on the shallow coast resulted in lava/water contact explosive processes, and the formation of spectacular pseudo-craters [...]
