The island's landmark: In the very South West of El Hierro you can admire some age-old juniper trees, the remains of erstwhile extensive juniper forests. In former times these buckled giants were allowed to stand, as handling the wood wasn't convenient.

The smallest of the Canaries is also the youngest island: Three million years old it is still in an early stage. Other than on the neighbouring islands, you won't find the typical monumental rock formations of erodet cores of volcanos and hardly any Barrancos (canyons), instead you can discover the softly rounded volcanic cones throughout El Hierro. In the South widespread fields of lava witness the last eruption in the year 1793. field of lava in the South (El Hierro)
