Cañadas del Teide National Park

Spain's highest peak is an absolute must-visit.

Right in the middle of the island is the El Teide volcano, Spain's highest peak, a strikingly snow-capped sight contrasting with the cactus-populated desert landscapes below. But it's notable also as a centre of ancient aboriginal Guanche civilisation and culture; of all Tenerife's hinterland, here the ecosystem allowed the ancient peoples to plant and raise livestock year round rather than emigrating with the seasons. That's why it's one of the island's oldest inhabited zones, with archaeological sites among its most interesting points.
