Productions on Tenerife

Tenerife has had a long and interesting career as a location for filming. The first recorded film shot in Tenerife dates from 1896; “Mujeres isleñas de Tenerife abasteciendo de carbón a la escuadra”(Tenerife’s island women supplying coal to the squad.)

In 1909 the French Production Company, Gaumont, came to Tenerife to film the Chinyero eruption. These were the very first moving images of the island seen in other European countries.
