Tenerife: The lady in the Canary

Outside the northwestern coast of Africa, the largest of the islands of the group of the Canary Islands offers a carefree vacation in a place with a unique, great natural beauty

Tenerife one could say that is the whole Earth in miniature. That's because the alternations of Nature and landscapes are enormous. The endless shores have their own character and unique beauty. Leaden volcanic beaches, hot from the heat of the sun, receiving almost the entire year on their arms those who love exotic and faraway places.

The ancient Greeks knew and cared to write to the Canary Islands, which is also the Tenerife. "Champs Elysees", "The Garden of the Hesperides", "auspicious Islands." From Homer and Hesiod marked places where rested the souls of heroes, but also home of happy people. "Children of Pluto" called these islands. True paradise stood to Greek navigators when discovered.

To know however we Tenerife trip took 17 hours. I flew Athens - Madrid and then on the island Gran Canaria. It was not until the port at least a three hour until dawn to board the speedboat and finally reached the coveted port of Santa Cruz, in Tenerife. Well but one can follow the most convenient route is Athens - Madrid - Tenerife. The island has two airports. The Reina Sofia in the south and the Los Rodeos in the north.

It has an area of ​​2,354 square kilometers, is located between La Gomera and Gran Canaria, 300 km from the African coast, and 700,000 inhabitants, of whom 220,000 live in the capital. Tenerife belongs to the seven volcanic Canary Islands, located four degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer, in an area of ​​7,242 km, extension of the African continent, the Moroccan mountains of the Great Atlas. These islands have appeared during the Cretaceous period and today belong to the Spanish state. La Palma, La Gomera, El Chiero, Gran Canaria, Fourteventoura, Lanzarote and Tenerife, the largest, most fertile and the most beautiful. Boasting the richest fauna and flora of the Canary Islands, and fourth in the world, the inexhaustible world of biodiversity attracts many experts and lovers from around the world. And it is not just the heavenly Nature of winning someone. The highest mountain of Spain, the Teide (Teide), dominates the 3,718 m on the island of Tenerife, inevitably drawing attention climbers and hikers. There is its name, which means "white mountain". The dormant volcano outlines a vast, imposing, lunar landscape.

The reason the nature of these islands are so diverse and are rarely created as a result of geological changes, thus marries volcanic land with tropical forests and alpine climate. Despite tourism development that increasingly grows 42% of its territory is covered by a protection programs of UNESCO and the European Union.

Tenerife was created after great volcanic eruption in the region and dates between 8 and 12 million years. Was a place of the tribe of Gkouanches, who came from North Africa and settled in the 3rd millennium BC Tenerife and the other Canary Islands. Monotheists, of Berber origin, different administration on each island. There were many ancient writers who believed that Gkouanches were descendants of Atlanta and the surrounding islands scattered after the destruction of Atlantis. The conquest of the islands began in 1402 with the invasion of the Norman conqueror Juan de Betenkour and Gkantifer de la chalets. Tenerife was the last island was captured after much bloodshed, under the command of Fernández de Lugo.

His army in 1494 managed to capture the island. When he landed, Juan de Betenkour christened the islands named Canary, because the place was full of the familiar canaries, whose homeland is these islands. Canaries traveled to Europe with the Spaniards in 1677, where due to genetic abnormalities mutated into yellow. In our time a few of the wild canaries kept in their place. They have green feathers and yellow shades on the head and back.

The capital of Tenerife, Santa Cruz, is simultaneously traditional and modernized. Beneath the evening summer light local attractions argue subtly lit, gracing a capital city that harmoniously blends modern architecture with baroque and classic. Simple and modern, dressed in white marble, the building of the Music Hall, created by architect Calatrava, reminds view seagull standing beside the sea overlooking the ocean. The scene of outdoor sports show every afternoon since the promenade are Tenerife, young or not, tend to be exercised. By sundown, they resort to jogging, to skates, even in bends afferent relying on the pillars of lanterns!

In this place, the sun shines all year round. The winter never reaches, at least on the coast, and the temperature during the summer months does not exceed 25 degrees. Temperature remains in winter. Point mark for the appointment of Spain - Tenerife is the gigantic historic bronze monument in the main square, Plaza de Espana. The monument is dedicated to the memory of victims of the Civil War.

The capital of the 16th century was nothing but a fishing village, later turned into a major port. The city became the administrative center of the island in 1723, and the capital of the whole archipelago, from 1822 to 1927.

The economy of Santa Cruz today is dominated by the activities of the port, which accommodates tankers, cruise ships and containers with local fruits for export.

On the streets, many Africans pave the goods brought from neighboring Africa. Handmade belts, carved masks, jewelery ivory. As for the large indoor food market, the La Racova, one dizzy from the abundance of tropical fruits! Papaya, mango and a bunch of other unknown to us. The open cafe - bar the landscaped pedestrianized center is always vibrant with people. An iced tea and a cappuccino is not more than 1.5 euros!

It is known that the Canary Islands are overwhelmed by millions of foreigners every year: hosting around 12 million tourists throughout its duration. Nights the overnight clubs Tenerife filled by visitors arriving from the distant north to abolish any of the giant hotel complexes in the coastal villages.

Streets and colonial buildings of the 19th century, renovated in colors of ocher and red: this is the aesthetics of the city. As for the mall, the Plaza de Candelaria, nothing will be missed if the visitor wishes to shop. All brands at prices even cheaper than Europe.

The most exciting part of the island we know with our tour in Nature. Starting from the many rich parks, starring Loro Park. Since 1972 where he opened the huge tropical park has received at least 11 million visitors. The heavenly hosts of wild animals and birds, and a wide variety of tropical plants and orchids. The villages of Tenerife are also of interest for the visitor. In Icod de los Vinos, west of the island, is the Drago Milenario (Drakodendro 1,000 years old!), A key attraction of Tenerife where all the visiting and immortalized. Another interesting little town worth seeing is the Garachio. The historic architecture attracts those who want to experience the place starting from the distant past. In no case, however, we should not miss the most important part of Tenerife: mount del Teide. On our way to the National Park del Teide pass by a dense pine forest, not imagining that there might be another world! The strong scent of pine literally intoxicates us. The climate is changing and becomes cold. Brain cells glides refreshing remedy, pure oxygen, which comes as a tonic dose to affect the body. Gossamer carpet reminiscent of the pine needles on the ground. Dreamy picture a series of clouds, and cover it under our quaint villages. The idyllic seaside villages painted with their traditional style while hosting huge hotel complexes, surprisingly, not a dissonance in the natural environment. The La Oratava (La Oratava), the Gkouimar (Guimar), the Candelaria (Candelaria), El Mentana (El Medano), Los Gkigkantes (Los Gigantes), The Mask (Masca), the Gkaratsiko (Garachico), Puerto de la Cruz (Puerto de la Cruz).

The position of the green vegetation comes to take the lunar landscape of volcanic land of Mount Teide and the adjacent mountains, Razanta, Blanca and Viezo. The sudden changing landscape shocked us. Having reached the 2,000 elevation, roam the naked earth, filled though a great silence and vastness, which spreads over an area of ​​10 miles. Awe is the emotion that dominates. The snowy peak of Teide looks completely fictional - like ice rocket that will scatter the dew in the blazing sun pencil gravel.

Earthy colors as if spilled around, drawing even glyptomorfa rocks. The nightmarish craters remain in the same place for too many years. The last volcanic eruption of Mount Teide held in 1798 and since 1954 the area has been designated National Park and hundreds of tourists visit the place to capture the uniqueness. The Las Kanantas (Las Canadas), the 17km oval crater of the volcano Teide, is known as the longest and most "cluttered" crater in the world. When the explosion took place, the top did not explode despite collapsed within its own crater.

Reaching the end of our trek, we look back at what we saw and experienced, and we concluded that the distant and exotic Tenerife actually encompasses instruments throughout the world in miniature. The long trip is past, if rewarded by gifts offers us this magical place.
