We enter the forest the legendary forest of El Cedro, a refuge from the Tertiary where the laurel has survived as a reminder of a time when men had not yet taken part in the world. The lush vegetation of its mountains is in tune with the green of its valley, one of the most fertile in the island of La Gomera. We stop in the Bar Las Vistas where we have a warm traditional watercress soup and prepare ourselves for the climb until Cruz de La Zarcita and past the amazing Roque de Agando until Degollada de Peraza where we turn back to playa Santiago.
