If you access El Teide via La Orotava road, you will find the Minas de San Jose some 10 kilometers after entering the National Park. It is an absolutely amazing lunar landscape that certainly deserves a little stop before reaching the top and the teleferic. Apparently, some people also find this desert plateau as an excellent place for catching a good dose of Sun rays or, in most cases, a good sunstroke ;-) Seems like the vision of half burned northern European bodies could not be avoid even in the top of El Teide ;-)
