Location of the Canary Islands

Located at a latitude = +28 grad and at a longitude = 15 grad W, las Islas Canarias of Spain consist of an archipielago made up of 7 "big islands" and 6 islets in the Atlantic Ocean. The nearest island is 108 km off the northwest African mainland contrasting with the maximum distance within the archipielago which is 485 km. Geographically the islands are part of the African continent but from a historical, economical, political and socio-cultural point of view, the Canarias are completely European.
