Nature and magic

La Gomera, declared a UNESCO biosphere reserve, is all about magic. Furrowed by dizzying ravines, fertile valleys, exotic-looking palm groves and farmsteads in traditional architecture, the island has its own, different personality, with lots of little details that made even Christopher Columbus fall in love with it before leaving to discover the New World. In San Sebastián, the capital of the island, the El Conde Tower bears witness to the scale of that first expedition by Columbus. Inland, the Garajonay National Park keeps a secret of priceless natural value – its laurisilva with over 65 million years of history. A visit to this place is an unforgettable experience. Other features to remember include the rich gastronomy and the craftwork made here since prehistoric times.
