Canary Islands: Archipelago in the Atlantic and autonomous community of Spain
The Canary Islands, also known informally as the Canaries, are a Spanish archipelago and the southernmost autonomous community of Spain located in the Atlantic Ocean, in a region known as Macaronesia, 100 kilometres west of Morocco at the closest point. It is one of eight regions with special consideration of historical nationality as recognized by the Spanish Government. Canary Islands are geographically located in the African Tectonic Plate, even though the archipielago is economically and politically European, as it is part of the European Union.
