The Canary Islands is a group of small islands off the coast of Spain and these islands have two capital cities; Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The name of these islands are not in reference to canaries but rather to dogs. This name was given because according to legend some of the island residents in ancient times would worship dogs. What is also interesting is that while the Canary Islands are associated with Spain, these islands are really located off the African coast and near the equator rather than Spain itself. Mount Teide, the volcano located near the Canary Islands, is the third largest volcano worldwide.
