Canaries?

Some scholars think that the Canary Islands in ancient times known as' Fortunatae Insulae "(the happy islands). Probably knew the Phoenicians and Carthaginians them already. According to the Roman scholar Pliny, roamed the islands, large packs of wild dogs (Latin canis). So he named the islands the "Canaries". Arab sailors reached the islands in the 12th century and in 1334 French sailors. Pope Clement VI awarded the islands to Castile in 1344. The French sailor Jean de Bethencourt conquered the islands in 1402 and was proclaimed King of the Canary Islands in 1404 by the Castilian King Henry III. Although Portugal claimed the islands, they were assigned to Spain by treaty in 1479. From then on began hispanisering of the Canary Islands which led to the extinction of the original inhabitants, the Guanches, a Berber People.

The Canary Islands are an autonomous region of Spain although they are relatively far removed from the Iberian Peninsula. The islands lie in the Atlantic Ocean, west of the coast of Africa, alongside Morocco. There are two provinces (or Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife) with the capital Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) and Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife). The entire archipelago includes the islands (by size): Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, Gomera and Hierro. There are also seven small uninhabited islands.

 

The archipelago is of volcanic origin. The highest volcano, the Pico de Teide (3718 m). The Canary Islands are known for their beautiful scenery and mild and dry climate. In the areas below 400 meters are the typical North African vegetation: dates, palms, dragon trees and cacti. Grows on higher ground laurel, eucalyptus, myrrh, pine trees and various flowering plants.

Agriculture and fishing are major industries. The volcanic soil of the Canaries is extremely fertile. There are no rivers and there is often drought. Therefore, a large part in an artificially watered. Major crops: bananas, citrus, sugarcane, peaches, figs, grapes, corn, tomatoes, onions and potatoes. Industry craft and produces textiles and fine embroidery. Tourism has been the 70 enormously. Especially in the winter, the islands are a popular haven for northern Europeans.

The total area of the islands is 7273 km ²

The island has different faces: the north is green, little touristy (in Puerto de la Cruz after) and regularly suffer from the aforementioned clouds and precipitation. Sometimes the cloudy days in a row in the north. It is also a bit colder than in the south.

The south, home to the tourist resorts of Playa de las Americas, Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos is, is very different than the north. Here is the barren, dry and much sunnier. That is the reason that tourism here has developed from nothing. To get to know the real Tenerife you escape from the tourist areas. The rest of the island has so much culture, cuisine and hospitality that would be a shame if this piece of authenticity would be beaten.
