Roque Cinchhado and Mount Teide - The Roque Cinchado is a unique rock formation and is emblematic of the island of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). It lies within the Teide National Park (a World Heritage Site) in the municipality of La Orotava, near the volcano of the same name, in the heart of the island. The Roque Cinchado is one of the largest in the world by altitude, for the entire park totals more than 2000 metres.

The Roque Cinchado is located about 1700 meters below the summit of Teide volcano and is a volcanic formation; it belongs to a line up of large rock formations, remnants of the former summit of the island, known as "Roques García."

The rock is a famous rock formation, in fact its image appeared on one thousand peseta bank notes, with Teide in the background.

Happy days and happy memories of a great visit to this unforgettable place !
