The Canary Islands region
Garafía is a municipality in the Canary Islands in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It is situated on the northern coast of the island of La Palma. The elevation ranges from 0 at the coast to 2545m at the Roque de los Muchachos.
It is the most wonderful area for walking and hiking with its network of marked walking paths, lush greenery and spectacular scenery. The steep forested hillside are dissected by barrancos (gorges). It has preserved the rural characteristics and its ecology, that it has a great potential in rural tourism. It is a most stunning place.
The higher parts of Garafia are covered in pine trees with just a small treeless area above the tree line. The central areas around the villages are mostly farmland or rough natural landscape including almond trees and vineyards The coastline is rough with steep cliffs and gorges and can be accessed at several points.
At the highest point of the municipality lies Roque de los Muchachos. This is the highest point of the island and is on the edge of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park which is the largest erosion crater in the world. The highest point is accessible by asphalted road from both the east and the west side and has several viewing points giving views inside the Caldera and over almost the entire island and often to the neighbouring islands of Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro. Roque de los Muchachos hosts a famous observatory named the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, run by the IAC and international collaborators.
