0074 Spain - Canary Islands

private swap

Canary Islands, basically an archipelago, consist of seven islands and many other islets. The islands are truly Spanish and of volcanic origin. Located in North Atlantic Ocean, they form the autonomous community of the Canary Islands. It is said that because of the climate and the location of this archipelago, the islands are perfect for astronomical observation. The Canary Islands are known by various names, such as Fortunate Islands, Garden of the Hesperides and the Atlantida, by the Celtics, Greeks and Romans. Two cities share the status of being the capital city of Canary Islands: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
