EFETajuya, La Palma, Spain

The Santaella brothers check in on their family home on the Spanish island of La Palma daily and despite the house being engulfed by slow-moving lava, it continues to defy the explosive volcanic eruption that has been underway for over six weeks.

The large villa set in a vast garden with fruit trees was built by their parents 40 years ago, as is common amongst families on the island. EFE
