The history of Teide Cable Car
Throughout the history various ideas and proposals were made to build a cable car that would make it easier for visitors to ascend Teide. However, the only project that was finally carried out was that of Andrés de Arroyo y González de Chávez. In a trip to Germany and Switzerland in 1929, he was impressed by the number of cable cars in the regions he visited and the magnificent vistas that he could enjoy from the upper stations. Upon his return he worked tirelessly to build a cable car on Teide that would make it easy for all visitors to ascend to the peak and enjoy the marvellous vistas from the summit.
