Description

El Lagar is located at an altitude of about 1000 m, and is surrounded by shallow ravines that bear testimony to the young age of the surrounding terrain. 

The regular misty rains caused by the trade winds are the main force shaping this landscape, which has been subject to erosion for only a few hundred thousand years. 

Thanks to their effect, this area has a cool climate, with mild temperatures in both summer and winter, while also favouring the growth of a “wet pine forest”, so called because the pine trees are interspersed with typical monteverde species such as faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis). 

Together with other smaller plants, these species form a thick cover of vegetation that gives this forest a shady environment. 

You will also be able to see the traces left by intensive exploitation in the past, such as the scars of former use still visible on the large pine trees.
