(from wikipedia)
Teide or Pico del Teide, is a volcano on Tenerife, Canary Islands. The volcano and its surrounds comprise the Parque Nacional del Teide, an 18,900 ha (46,703 acre) national park that was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on June 29th, 2007.

At 3,718 m (12,198 ft) above sea level, and approximately 7,500 m (25,000 ft) above the adjacent sea bed, Teide is the highest mountain in Spain and the highest mountain in any Atlantic island. (Note: The actual summit stands 3 m (10 ft) higher than the triangulation station, and associated bench mark, which has an altitude of 3,715 m (12,188 ft) ). The island of Tenerife itself is the third largest volcano by volume on Earth, making Tenerife the third largest volcanic island on Earth. Teide is also the third highest volcano on a volcanic ocean island.

Due to its eruptive history and location close to population centres, the volcano has been designated a Decade Volcano worthy of close study to prevent future natural disasters.

Hola Luca,
vivo cerca del volcán Teide,
realmente es un lugar precioso...

Hey Luca,

How did you know my nickname 'Molly'?

Anyway,, the picture...
I'v been in Spain for one day and it did'nt look like this.
If you'd said it was made in Africa I would have believed it also.
