Country and people
The Canary Islands consist of seven large and numerous small islands. Geologically they belong to
Africa, politically to Spain and biogeographically to Macaronesia, which also includes Cape Verde and
Tenerife is the largest island in the group and is also called the "Island of Eternal Spring". In the South
there is a barren landscape, consisting mainly of pumice and lava, with much higher temperatures
and lower rainfall than the green and quiet North.
The North is characterized by a lush and varied vegetation. The explanation for this is the volcano
Teide. With its 3,817 m it is the highest mountain in Spain and divides the island into two climate
zones. It is also typical for the island that there are no seasons that can be clearly separated from
each other as we know them. Each month has its own particularity, but thanks to the temperate
climate, you can enjoy the sun and the sea all year round.
