Caption: Caldera de Taburiente. View into the Caldera de Taburiente, one of the world's largest erosion basins, which is formed from volcanic rocks on La Palma in the Canary Islands. The Caldera has been created during the last 2 million years due to the erosion of volcanic rock and ash by weathering. It dominates northern La Palma, being about 5 kilometres (km) across, 2 km deep and having an area of about 30 square km. A number of extinct volcanic peaks line the rim of the basin. Photographed from the Roque de los Muchachos, which at 2426 metres is the highest peak around the basin.
