Eruption of the Chahorra Volcano

The Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan), celebrates the anniversary of the eruption of the Chahorra or Narices del Teide volcano in 1798, which lasted 99 days, one of 16 historical eruptions in the Canary Islands.

Involcan posted on its social networks that it celebrates this volcanic eruption - although many people associate this type of activity as a source of destruction - because thanks to the existing magmatic activity and the countless number of eruptions that have occurred on the islands over millions of years, it has been possible to build the archipelago. "Without volcanic activity the Canary Islands would not have been built and therefore the Canarian society would not have existed," says Involcan to argue the celebration of this anniversary.

It also listed 16 historical eruptions in the Canary Islands:
  1. La Palma with the Tacande volcano (1430-1447)
  2. In 1492, Christopher Columbus described a volcanic eruption in Tenerife, although its specific location is unknown
  3. The Boca Cangrejo eruption, also on Tenerife, is dated to the 16th century
  4. Tehuya volcano erupted in 1586 on La Palma
  5. Tigalate in 1646 on La Palma
  6. San Antonio between 1677-1678, on the island of La Palma
  7. On Tenerife, between 1704-1705 the Siete Fuentes (Fasnia-Arafo) 
  8. Trevejo or Arenas Negras volcano in Tenerife erupted in 1706
  9. In 1712, La Palma was the scene of a new eruption of the Charco volcano
  10. The eruption of Timanfaya, in Lanzarote, between 1730 and 1736
  11. Chahorra or Narices del Teide (Noses of Teide), in Tenerife, in 1798
  12. Tao-Nuevo del Fuego-Tinguatón, in Lanzarote, in 1824
  13. In the 20th century, the Chinyero volcano, in Tenerife, erupted in 1909
  14. San Juan, on La Palma, in 1949 
  15. Teneguía, also on La Palma island, in 1971
  16. Tagoro, underwater volcano on El Hierro, between 2011 and 2012. 
To this list must be added the eruption on La Palma in 2021.
