Staying at Aldiana Club Fuerteventura during Covid

Did you know that the Canary Islands were named after dogs, not birds? There are lots of birds on the islands of Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Graciosa but the name “Canary Islands” actually originated from the Latin word for dogs – Canaria. So you could as well call these islands “Islands of the Dogs”.
