The fairy tale forest

In the mountainous center of the island breathes the green soul of La Gomera, the National Park Garajonay, Europe’s oldest primeval forest (from the tertiary), UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. The Garajonay is for sure a fairy tale forest: Lichen-covered, gnarled tree heath combing humidity out the foggy trade winds, moss and ferns covering the soft ground and trunks, evergreen laurel trees shading the woods.
