Since early 2016, the Cerro Gordo Volcano in Granátula de Calatrava can be visited, following an interpetive tour.
Cerro Gordo, in Granatula de Calatrava, is one of Spain's most important volcanos and the first that can be visited.
Since early 2016, Cerro Gordo offers an interpretive tour:
It is a sort of outdoor museum, an attractive space that analyzes the history and the volcanic phenomenon in the Campo de Calatrava area, a region which has about 300 volcanoes and whose last eruptions took place less than 10,000 years ago.
The access area explains what you will see during your visit: A series of walkways guide the visitors to the volcano and 10 interpretive tables, located along the route, explain how and what is the process of formation of a volcano as well as simple aspects of volcanic geology of this particular area and the phenomenon in general. There is also a wooden, four meters high gazebo-observatory, offering beautiful panoramic views.
