Cueva de los Verdes and Jameos del Agua - Lanzarote

The Cueva de los Verdes in the north of the resort island of Lanzarote, is a 7 km long tunnel which was born after a volcanic eruption of the Vulcano de la Corona.

The upper coat of the lava solidified in the air while the lava flow continued underneath the surface. After the lava flow ran dry, the tunnel remained and formed enormous hall.
