Barranco de las AngustiasDeze pagina in Nederlands
The Barranco de las Angustias gives access to the Caldera de Taburiente. The road runs from Los Llanos up through Los Barros and descends past the information hut down into the bottom of the barranco (gorge) to a car park.
From the car park you can walk into the Caldera or take a taxi-jeep up to Los Brecitos where it is a 7 hour walk back down to the car park.
