Teide National Park

Teide National Park is on Tenerife, the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands. It's named for Mount Teide, a towering volcano and the highest peak in Spain. Trails and the Teide Cable Car lead to the summit. To the west, Pico Viejo has crater views. The unusual rock formations of Roques de García include the iconic Roque Cinchado column. Southwest, a traditional shepherd’s home is now the Juan Évora Ethnographic Museum.
