Timanfaya was declared a National Park on August 9, 1974. It occupies an area of 51.07 km² in the south west of the island and the entire park is of volcanic origin. The most recent volcanic eruptions took place in the 18th century, between the years 1730 and 1736. Among its most well-known volcanoes are La Montaña de Fuego (Fire Mountain), la Caldera del Corazoncillo (Little Heart Cauldron) and Montaña Rajada (Cracked Mountain). There is still a great deal of volcanic activity, with hot points that can reach up to up to 100-120°C on the surface, and 600°C at a depth of 13 metres.
