Canary Isalnds, Spain

It's time for the second beautiful card sent by Adolfo from even more beautiful Canary Islands. It's a panorama of Tenerife, the largest of seven Canary Islands, with the Mount Teide in the back. Mount Teide is a volcano and with its 3,718-metre summit is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level in the islands of the Atlantic.  The volcano and its surroundings comprise Teide National Park, which has an area of 18,900 hectares and was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2007. 
Tenerife is a very very popular tourist destination with about 5 million tourist annually, the most of any Canary Islands. Teide National Park is visited by 2.8 million visitors each year, which makes it one of the most visited national parks of the world. 

Adolfo used the other two stamps from the musical instruments set on this postcard, this time it's cymbals (platillos) and timbales.
