The Royal Economic Society of Friends of the Country of Tenerife (RSEAPT - Real Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País de Tenerife) and the University of La Laguna will pay tribute to Alexander Von Humboldt with the "Alexander von Humboldt and the illustrated reality” exhibition. The exhibition will run from 25th June to 18th July, from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and from 4.00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and a seminar will be held on 10th and 11th July. Admission is free.

The seminar, dedicated to one of the founders of modern geography and an expert in natural sciences, commemorates the 250th anniversary of his birth. Various experts on Humboldt’s life will participate in the "In the wake of Alexander von Humboldt: travel, science and culture” seminar and will dig deeper into this outstanding historical figure from different perspectives and disciplines. Humboldt studied vegetation, volcanism and Tenerife’s population on a trip he made to the island in 1799. In his work “Kosmos”, he refers to the landscape of the La Orotava Valley, the sea of clouds and even the Teide volcano.
