An unbelievable image shows the home in El Paríso appearing to be perfectly intact as it sits in the midst of devastation.
It has been dubbed a “miracle house” for somehow surviving the magma gushing from the Cumbre Vieja volcano that has destroyed over 350 properties.
The retired Danish couple who own the home are “relieved it’s still standing”, according to Ada Monnikendam, who built the house with her husband.
“We all started crying like crazy when I told them [the owners] that their beloved house was intact,” she told El Mundo.
More than half of the homes in the area and a local school have been ravaged by the relentless flow of lava.
The couple, who “don’t want to talk to anyone because they won’t stop crying,” are ironically said to have chosen La Palma specifically because of its volcanic landscape.
Monnikendam said they were “sad to know that the house is there alone without anyone being able to take care of it.”
But the builder realises how lucky they are for the home to still be standing and explaining the homeowners have friends in the area who have lost everything
