Map Postcard of Fuerteventura, Canary Island

Thank you to Juha from South Finland for send me this beautiful Map Postcard from Canary Islands during her vacation.

Juha send me the postcard of Fuerteventura, one of largest island in Canary Island.

CANARY ISLANDS: The Happy Islands
This paradisiac group of islands, enjoying a wonderful climate, with a constant mild temperature through all the year, and splendid beaches of fine sand, consists of 7 larger islands (Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro) and a few smaller ones (Alegranza, Graciosa, MontaƱa Clara, Roque del Este, Roque del Oeste and Lobos).

Already Greeks and Romans reported on this archipelago of volcanic origins, and called it the Happy Islands, Garden of the Hesperides, Atlantida. Some historians suppose that the legendary continent Atlantis was located here. The islands' original population, commonly called Guanches, is tall and of white skin.

You may refers to here for details of each and every island in Canary Island.
