Description:
Situated at the extreme north eastern tip of the island, the rather less well known Anaga peninsula is very wild and rugged. To its north are high cliffs falling hundreds of metres into sea, whose cloud capped upper slopes and summits, known as the Monte de Las Mercedes (Mountains of las Mercedes, this image) are covered in almost impenetrable “Laurisilva” or “Greenwood” forest. Also known as Laurel or bay-leaf tree forests they thrive in areas of constant moisture and temperature and are the last remaining sub tropical cloud forests on earth. Once widespread throughout the Mediterranean and North African regions millions of years ago, they now only exist in the western Canary Islands, Madeira and the Azores.
