La Gomera is naturally beautiful and hides an infinite number of nooks and crannies among its beautiful valleys. This is the case of Taguluche, located in the west of the island, between Alojera and the rocky formations that make up the Valle Gran Rey Natural Park. Declared a Site of Community Interest by the European Union, it has one of the most important palm groves in the Canary Islands.
The scenery is spectacular, with the horizontal basalt strata that form the cliffs of the Lomo del Carretón Natural Monument, the western boundary of the Garajonay National Park, visible from an altitude of around 900 metres above sea level. The best view of Taguluche is undoubtedly obtained from El Santo viewpoint.
Taguluche has countless trails and stone walkways that allow passers-by to enjoy its magnificent scenery. The curious agricultural system used by the locals on terraces or hillsides, where they make use of the water that spontaneously gushes out of the springs. Around these springs you can find different curious species of the rich flora of the area such as the black barbusano, the marmulano and the strawberry tree next to small pine forests. Other endemic flora, such as the tabaiba and the mountain carthamus, both endangered and protected species, are also present in this area.
For nature lovers and those who enjoy being outdoors, Taguluche is without doubt one of the places not to be missed when visiting La Gomera, along with other picturesque towns such as Agulo, Alajeró, Hermigua, Chejelipes or El Cedro.
