Parque Nacional de Garajonay

A very old forest, representative example of the canary laurel forest, an ecosystem of the Tertiary. Disappeared from the continent due to the climate change during the Quaternary. On La Gomera the singular forest has been conserved because of the excellent conditions.
The National Park covers little more than 10 % of the island. In 1986 it was declared a UNESCO World Herritage Site.
