Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the archipelago. It is located north of the Tropic of Cancer, among Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Palma
The archipelago of the Canary Islands is composed of 7 main islands and numerous minor islands, all of volcanic origin, in the Atlantic Ocean, off north-western Africa.
There are only a few references to these islands at the time of the Romans and Greeks. It is said that they gave origin to the myth of the Garden of the Hesperides. Some people say that you can still see the vestige of the mythical Atlantis. There are many doubts concerning the name of these islands: they may be named after the dogs which first inhabited them. There is a legend concerning the mountain range Atlantis inhabited by the Canari.
The first European settlers to arrive were the Genoese followed by the Aragonese, the inhabitants of the Balearics and the Portuguese. The Spaniards attempted many times to conquer these islands until the XV century when the archipelago became part of the Spanish sphere.
Today the Canary Islands are an autonomous community belonging to the Reign of Spain which maintained in its climate and landscape, peculiar characteristics similar to those of the close African coast.
The islands are well connected, both by water and air. Departures are regular every day from the main centres of the principal islands like Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
