The Garajonay National Park is a Spanish protected natural area that covers more than 10% of the surface of the island of La Gomera, in the autonomous community of the Canary Islands. It was declared a National Park in 1981 and was subsequently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986. Since 2012, the park has also been a Biosphere Reserve together with the whole island. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve because it is home to the best known example in the Old World of laurel forest, a humid forest of various evergreen species that covered practically all of Europe in the Tertiary period.
