These trees are really worth a look but don't expect a visitors centre or even any evidence of the site being cared for or new trees cultivated. There is nothing there, just a few really amazing trees that have been distorted by the continuous wind...More

The road changes to a dirt track down to the Juniper trees but its definitely worth the drive. Stunning scenery, quiet and a lovely place to sit, reflect and enjoy the peace and tranquility. Well worth a visit.

Yes its a tree - but historic and quite a unique emblem of El Hierro. Best to walk here as part of a walking holiday -we did ours with Inntravel

This is a wonderfully wild and atmospheric place, away from any constructions. The views over the Atlantic are breathtaking but it is the photogenic juniper trees twisted by the strong winds which steal the show. Cameras are essential to capture this wild place.

You need to drive about 5 km on a dirt road with a pretty good surface (at least when we visited in February). There is are several trails, not all that well marked that take you by many of these twisted and "blown over" juniper...More
