The Cueva del Viento is a volcanic cavity located in the neighborhood of Icod de los Vinos that bears the same name. It was formed 27,000 years ago in basaltic lavas from the first eruptive phase of the volcano Pico Viejo, located next to the Teide (Tenerife, Canary Islands).
This volcanic tube, whose name is due to the significant air currents produced inside, is the fifth longest in the world (18 kilometers topographed) after the first four found on the largest island of the archipelago of Hawaii (United States). It constitutes an enormous labyrinthine network of subterranean passages, with countless unexplored ramifications that will allow its length to be extended in the future.
Museum of Science and Cosmos Tenerife
The Museum of Science and Cosmos is not a traditional museum. The aim of these museums is to communicate science, making use of all available means, especially interactivity and experimentation in multidisciplinary environments that enhance the aspects of play and perception and analysis of reality, with real objects but also with multimedia tools.
