" Teide is a member of every family on Tenerife"
In addition to its impressive height of 3,718 meters above sea level,
the highest point in the Canary Islands and Spain, the Teide is also the third highest
island volcano in the world at 7,500 meters above sea level. The Teide massif grew in the middle between
the three islands Teno, Adeje and Anaga and today forms the caldera of an older volcano which collapsed
due to its sheer size and gave the Teide its foundation. The name of the volcano Teide is based on the name Echeyde
of the Guanches, the indigenous people of Tenerife. He describes the dwelling place of the evil spirit Guayota who,
according to legend, imprisoned the sun god Magec.
