After crossing the small entrance we descend an ingenious spiral staircase made of volcanic rock and wood, which allows us to discover, little by little from the top, the first interior scenario: the "Jameo Chico" (Small Jameo). In this space we notice the abundant vegetation and ornamental elements that fill the structure of the Jameo with visual stimulus
Blending into the surrounding landscape, we come to a footbridge which allows visitors to cross the lake sideways. After ascending through a landscaped wall, we will reach the "Jameo Grande" (Big Jameo). Among other attractions there we find an spectacular Auditorium inside a volcanic grotto.
Services and Other Data
The tunnel caused by the eruption of La Corona Volcano is 6 kilometres long, one of the longest in the world. It flows from the crater of the volcano towards the sea forming an underwater stretch of 1,5 kilometres that is known as the "Túnel de la Atlántida" (the Tunnel of Atlantis). The partial collapse of the tunnel roof forms a structure known in the island's aboriginal tongue as a "jameo," which means an opening in the ground that provides access to various grottoes.
