Spain's Civil Guard reported on Saturday that Spanish police have intercepted 2,666 kilos of cocaine from Colombia.
It is one of the biggest drug consignments confiscated in recent years in Spain.
The details of the operation were given at a news conference in Tenerife.
The drugs were destined for Europe, and come through a traditional route from African used by smugglers of marijuana, but were intercepted in the Canary Islands coastal area.
1,280 kilos of marijuana was also seized in the same operation.
The Civil Guard said the operation against the smugglers took place in the Spanish cities of Tenerife, Melilla, Malaga and Almeria, and culminated with the seizure of the drugs.
