Giant LizardThe Giant lizard of La Gomera is one of the most threatened vertebrate of the planet
Small island located less than 30 kms of Tenerife, La Gomera is an island almost intact that retains its nature and cares for their traditions.
La Gomera has a surface area of 372km2, and is the second smallest island and its capital city is San Sebastian de La Gomera. It is also known as “isla colombina” because that was where Colon did his last stop before traveling to the New World. La Gomera is a island with steep cliffs, quaint villages among the slopes, trails to get lost, unique landscapes, small coves and a tradition preserved almost intact by its inhabitants.
La Gomera hides a treasure unique in the world, the Garajonay Natural Park, located in the center of the island, a World Heritage Site since 1981, in which we are surrounded by laurisilva, the laurel forest best-preserved of the world.
The Valle Gran Rey is an impressive ravine, last refuge of the giant lizard of La Gomera, is also one of the most visited destinations in the island.
But in addition, La Gomera possesses a unique bottom of the sea because of its cliffs formed by lava eroded.
It is in this island where it is born and still retains a single language in the world the “hiss” that was a way to communicate between the inhabitants used to overcome the steep terrain of La Gomera.
