Modern, cosmopolitan, and very trendy, the Canary Islands are a major center for European tourism. With a total population of about two million, these seven diverse islands are as distinct from each other as they are from the mainland of Spain. The first settlers arrived from North Africa, building an economic system loosely based around farming. Invaded by Europeans in the 14th century, the islands gradually developed a more European feel, but with a mixed population of ethnicities rarely found anywhere else in the world. While agriculture is still alive and well here, the tropical beaches and vibrant nightlife tend to top any vacation itinerary.
