Gomera Forest

In my dreams alone, I imagined such a place

La Gomera‘s Bosque del Cedro (Cedar woods): the laurisilva – or laurel rain forest – which, in the Tertiary period covered almost all of Europe and extended across the Mediterranean region. Today, La Gomera’s Bosque del Cedro is the best example left of these forests, only small portions of which remain in the Canary Islands and, is part of the Garajonay National Park, recognized as a World Heritage Site.
