The Jameos del Agua are located on the bottom of the La Corona Mountain Volcano (its last eruption was 3000 years ago) on the island of Lanzarote.

The Jameos del Agua are considered as one of the most interesting creeks and tube systems on the world. This was formed due to the rain falling from the top of the tunnel, whether from the fact it had 20 meters high or accumulated gases inside which produced an explosion.
