The Garanjonay National Park is located in the center of the island of La Gomera. Since 1981, it is part of UENESCO’s world heritage, the highest title in natural preservation. The park occupies 40 square kilometers and it extends in each municipality of the island. It has the name of the Garanjonay Mountain, the highest point in the island, which culminates at 1484 meters in altitude.
It is the best example of laurisilva that you will find. The laurisilva is a humid tropical forest that in the Tertiary age occupied the majority of Europe. It is a dense forest that has been preserved in La Gomera thanks to the humidity in the peak of the island. It is almost always covered in clouds. It is a pity because you cannot see the surrounding islands, but the park is beautiful.
