Overview

Located 10km from the city centre in the neighboring municipality of Santa Brígida, Caldera Bandama is the crater of a volcano in all its majesty and a reminder of the volcanic origin of the whole archipelago. It is around 1km in diameter, with a 10km perimeter and an average depth of 200 meters. However, the importance of Bandama, a place where grapes were once grown and wine produced in the last century, is due not only to its landscape and plants, some of which are unique, but also to its archeology, as inside the crater, in the north wall to be precise, there are various caves used by the original Islanders as silos and homes.
