Welcome to Tenerife

Through this website, the Tenerife Island Council (Cabildo) aims to offer a cultural, historical, natural and tourist overview of the island. The various pages have been developed with the aim of responding to the majority of visitor enquiries, as well as of answering the questions posed by local inhabitants wishing to expand their knowledge of their immediate environment.

Hotels, apartments and rural guesthouses all use their own search engine, which can be accessed by clicking on the Accommodation banner. You can search for establishments either by name or by zone, municipality, type or category.

The information presented here requires constant updating. If you spot anything that needs changing, in order to help us improve the service we are offering please send any information or suggestions to:

Video of the day - The Mountain

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.
