Flight Lisboa - Praia, view over Tenerife in NW direction. The most notable features in the right portion of the scene are the Valle de Güímar (E slope, right side) and the Valle de Orotava (NW slope, across the ridge), both shaped by huge prehistoric landslides. The stratovolcano Pico del Teide (3715 m), the highest summit of Spain and Macaronesia, prominently rises from the caldera known as Las Cañadas, which is most probably also the result of a mountain collapse.
