Nature and Culture
Volcanoes. They may be one of the first things that pops into your mind when thinking about Tenerife’s nature. You are right. Our island is crowned by the third highest volcano on our planet. More than 25590 feet if measured from its base.?????(12,250 ft. from base) We are talking about Mount Teide, a giant made of rock and fire that was declared a UNESCO site in 2007, thanks to its unique geological values.
Nevertheless, Tenerife’s natural value goes beyond volcanic phenomena; lush cloud forests, old sharp rocky mountains that seem to fall into a sea full of cetaceans. There are fertile valleys carved out by massive landslides and challenging slopes, terraced to grow the widest variety of plants and crops in Tenerife. On an area of 785,48 square miles, we can find more than six different climate. The number of ecosystems is much higher as our island is a continent in miniature.
Tenerife 100 Cultures does not suggest you discover only Tenerife’s natural majesty, but also the magical ties embroidered by its lush nature and the different generations of men and women who have lived in this paradise.
