Teide National Park is a national park surrounding Mount Teide in the middle of Tenerife covering roughly 19,000 hectares (47,000 acres). This Park was created in 1954 in recognition of its volcanic and biological singularity. It is Spain's highest point and the third tallest volcano in the world.
The fauna and flora includes a significant array of endemic Canarian species and several others that only live in the Park.
Teide National Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 under the Natural Asset category.
