El Patronato del Parque Nacional del Teide y la Comisión Mixta de Gestión de los Parques Nacionales en Canarias, en reuniones celebradas durante 2002, tomaron el acuerdo de la iniciativa de declaración del Parque Nacional del Teide como Patrimonio de la Humanidad.
El Teide es con sus 3.718 metros sobre el nivel del mar la cima más alta de España y de todos los archipiélagos atlánticos, altitud que con sus abruptas laderas alcanza en apenas trece kilómetros desde la línea de costa.
El Teide culmina en el Pilón de Azúcar, que presenta aún actividad residual en forma de fumarolas y solfataras a 86º C.

At 3718 metres above sea level El Teide is Tenerife's magnificent oceanic basalt volcanic peak with a history of recent activity, notably the destruction of a town in the early 1700s.
El Teide and its neighbour Pico Viejo are post-caldera stratocones of lavas and pyroclasts, made of basalt, trachyte and phonolite.
Unfortunately, because so many people wish to visit it the topmost part of the summit of El Teide is only accessible with a permit, which you get from the park authorities' office in person (take your passport too), and these are limited because tourist operators snaffle nearly all of them.
