Garajonay National Park

A short distance from the Saharan desert coasts, along the rugged peaks of the Canary Island of La Gomera, one of the most unique and emblematic forests of the Spanish State takes refuge. The persistent envelope of mist that ascends from the Ocean sticks to the island peaks, impregnating them with moisture and freshness, propitiates the miraculous existence of these splendid and mysterious jungles, last surviving vestiges of the ancient subtropical forests that populated the area millions of years ago Mediterranean. "
The Canarian laurel, a relieved Tertiary ecosystem disappeared from the continent as a result of the Quaternary climate changes, finds refuge in the foggy area of ​​the Canary Islands. Garajonay is currently the best conserved sample of this ecosystem, housing more than half of the mature laurel forests of the Archipelago. Other values ​​of the National Park are the diversity of types of plant formations, the large number of endemic species and the existence of spectacular geological monuments, such as Los Roques. It concentrates half of the mature tree extension of this type of vegetation throughout the archipelago, under optimal conservation conditions.
