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 that howls through and a frayed rope encircling the most beautiful of them.

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

Landscapes on El Hierro are exceptional: they are way more 'rough' than La Palma or Tenerife. El Sabinar evidences that perfectly. Juniper trees unimaginably twisted by strong winds create a unique view: you just stand there and admire the force of nature.

A spread out group of old looking Cupressus trees heavily sculpted by the wind. You can walk from the Ermita de la Virgen or walk. Be warned the walk is just over 3 hours round-trip and very windy. Probably not worth it if foggy (which it often is)
