La Gomera: Roque de Agando

Magical Mountain

This is Roque de Agando, a sacred mountain for the indigenous guanche people of La Gomera and also one of several volcanic plugs in the area. We drove right past this mountain on our first day as we headed towards El Cedro and Garajonay National Park, the low fog completely hid it from view. Then it cleared and we were blessed with this beauty!

It’s a famous symbol for the island of La Gomera which is the second-smallest Canary Island. 🇮🇨

At the time we visited, Jason Momoa was in Hawaii protesting against a 30 meter telescope planned for construction there.

He then went on to say:

We are the unexpected we are the resistance we will never give up #kapualoha #kukiaimauna TMT you are welcome in Canary Islands the conditions are better

Jason Momoa

This annoyed me, because I don’t think he realises how sacred the Canary Islands are and the people of the Canaries have never welcomed the idea of this giant telescope either. I understand why he doesn’t want it there, but don’t dump it on us!

Rant over.

I just wanted to share some of the lesser known beauties of our islands and show them some love.
