Hermigua Valley


We are now in the municipality that is supposed to have the best weather, according to the experts, favored by the trade winds that allow a perfect degree of humidity and ideal sun and temperature.

Leaving behind the tunnel of La Cumbre, if we go out from San Sebastián de La Gomera towards Hermigua, we start a descent between curves that will take us directly into the splendid valley of this municipality or, if we take a diversion to the left in the crossroad after the tunnel, we can go to another beautiful, but different, place: the hamlet of El Cedro, next to the limits of Garanjonay National Park, the biggest mass of green mount in Canarias, from where you can take a path that leads you to the Convent, in Hermigua.

A Rural Place

Hermigua is located at about 20 kilometers from the capital of La Gomera, San Sebastián, which means you are already on the other side of the island! It’s a more rural place, where they still practice agriculture in terraces. They cultivate bananas, tomatoes and palm to extract honey. The valley is very green, thanks to the humidity of the island and the laurisilva, the primitive forest that preserves water throughout the year.

Just before arriving to Hermigua you will find the visitors center of Garajonay National Park, UNESCO’s world heritage. In the middle of the valley, there is a river that flows down to El Cedro. They say that it was the home of Gara and Jonay, two native lovers of the island, whose forbidden love gave the park its name.
