The island of Tenerife is the central and most important of the Canary Islands, an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of the African continent. After the Spanish 'conquered' Tenerife at the end of the 15th century, the native people, the Guanches, were 'ethnically and culturally absorbed' out of existence. This map accompanies the translation of Friar Alonso de Espinosa's 16th century account of the island, which was first published in Seville in 1594.
