"No place in the world seems more appropriate to banish melancholy and to give peace to a painfully touched mind than Tenerife ..."



Alexander von Humboldt
Naturalist and explorer



Alexander Humboldt

During his research trip from Europe to South America, Alexander von Humboldt spent a week in Tenerife in 1799. He explored the island from the north coast. He wandered around in the Orotava Valley up to the caldera and the Teide volcano. In his memoirs Humboldt writes: "In the hot earth belt I have seen landscapes where nature is more magnificent, richer in the development of organic forms. But after wandering the shores of Orinoco, the Cordilleras of Peru, and the beautiful valleys of Mexico, I must confess that I have never before had such a manifold, so attractive painting, so harmonious in the distribution of green and rocky masses ... I can see that only compare with the gulfs of Genoa and Naples, but the Orotava Valley far surpasses them by its size and the richness of its vegetation. "
