Spinning Over The Island

National Park of Las Cañadas del Teide is perhaps one of the most impressive and spectacular national park that the Spanish territory have

National Park of Las Cañadas del Teide is perhaps one of the most impressive and spectacular national park that the Spanish territory have, and it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2007. The volcano Teide crowning the highest point of the Spanish geography at 3718m, the views are breathtaking … the perfect place to test the new spinner!. The park, which is of volcanic origin, have three key places to visit. Obviously, the first, it is the Teide. With a cable car can be raised almost to the top of the mountain, requiring special permission to climb to the highest top. In very very clear day, you can see the seven Canary Islands in all their splendor, and sunrises are spectacular. Another place to visit are the Roques de Garcia, famous at the time of the “pesetas”, the “before Euro” national money, because they were the image of the 1000 “pesetas” bill.

These rocs, also of volcanic origin, were created due to erosion, since the various materials they contain have different resistance to the erosion. But undoubtedly the Ucanca Valley is attracting more attention, because from it can be seen both the Roques and the Teide. The formation of this valley is curious, because for thousands of years, the original volcano that formed the island of Tenerife is estimated that he had a height of over 5000 meters. But after an eruption, the caldera magma remained empty and collapsed on its own weight, creating the Ucanca Valley. The subsequent landslide would also lead to Orotova Valley, one of the first class tourist area of Tenerife. In short, a place to visit and enjoy the most … and if with a lomo camera, the better!
