Formation of the Los Marteles Crater, which extends before one in a southerly direction, is due to an explosive type of volcanism, produced by the interaction of water-magma. As a consequence we encounter an elliptical shaped crater, XXX meters in diameter and XX Deep. Its geological age corresponds to the “Recent Cycle” and it is a contemporary of the Bandma Crater, the Pico de Osorio and of the volcanic hole of Lomo Magullo. Given that it forms a closed water basin, its bed is very suitable for agriculture, thus seeing livestock grazing in the same is not an unusual sight.
The Tenteniguada Cratger can be sighted right on the opposite side, in a northeasterly direction, with this crater, of an erosive origin, representing the Massif has uncovered the lava plugs or chimneys of the “Roque Nublo Cycle” eruptions: Roques de Tenteniguada, Roque del Pine and Roque Saucillo. It is in this spectacular landscape that we also encounter capricious forms due to the erosion.
