The Canary Islands
Located off the coast of northwestern Africa, the Canary Islands are a Spanish archipelago of rocky volcanic islands that are famous for their black and white sand beaches. It is dominated by Mt. Teide, an active volcano that occasionally snows and is part of Teide National Park, which is located on the island of Tenerife, which is also the largest island in the archipelago. Tenerife's capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is the site of a massive pre-Lent Carnival celebration.

Spain, a country located on Europe's Iberian Peninsula, is divided into 17 autonomous regions, each with a distinct geographical and cultural identity. Real Madrid, the country's capital city, is home to the Royal Palace and the Prado museum, which houses works by European masters. Segovia is home to a medieval castle (the Alcázar) as well as a preserved Roman aqueduct. Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is defined by Antoni Gaud's whimsical modernist landmarks, such as the Sagrada Famlia church, which he completed in 1882.
How far is Puerto de la Cruz from Spain?
