A group of tourists take a moment to adjust to the bright daylight before exiting the Cueva del Llano. The cave is a million years old, and is the oldest in all the archipelago of the Canary islands. It is a lava pipe whose length is 648 meters, of which 400m are easily accesible. The passable zone of the pipe is of considerable dimensions, with widths from 7 to 12 meters and heights between 3 and 5 meters.

Location: Cueva del Llano, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain
