The fertile lava ash in the south of La Palma is very rich in minerals with a high content of phosphorus, potassium and calcium. It releases the water it stores only slowly – thanks to it, one of the best wine-growing areas of the archipelago, the "Subzona Fuencaliente", was created here. Photo: Ines Dietrich
The natural spectacle of the volcano that erupted on Cumbre Vieja on 21 September 2021 is fascinating – but only from a distance. Unfortunately, it brought a lot of suffering to the inhabitants of the area near the fire mountain. Photos: Saúl Santos
