Tenerife was originally formed from three separate islands 3 million years ago. The island was finally born after the Teide volcano melted them altogether. The last eruption of the volcano took place near Santiago del Teide in 1909.
Spain conquered Tenerife over 500 years ago.The name of the Spanish conquerer was Alonso Fernandez de Lugo. In 1484 he landed in Santa Cruz, which was called Anaza at the time. De Lugo had been ordered by the Spanish king to suppress the last of the natives (Guanches). But the Guanches were very brave and courageous. There was a battle an 2000 Spanish soldiers died, and De Lugo was seriously injured. The town where this took place has been renamed La Matanza ever since, which means “massacre” in Spanish. However, despite this victory, in 1495 the Guanches succombed to the plague, which finally lead to Tenerife being conquered by the Spanish crown.
