Great place - full of myths and legends
out de 2021 • Casais
Wednesday 20th October and we visited the rather unique Laguna Grande in the Garajonay National Park. It is a very short distance off the GM2, it is well signposted. There is car park here, however tour busses have to park on the roadway.

It is a space of about 800 square metres and is the largest recreational area in the Park.

It is called a Laguna because after heavy rain the central part floods, otherwise it is bone dry.

Folklore stories, mthys and legends abound concerning Laguna Grande, which are further  enhanced as nothing grows here. It is rumoured that it was once a meeting place for witches. Supposedly they would gather around the circle of 15 stones, at the heart of the area, to perform rituals and incantations.

There are a number of brick built barbecue areas dotted around the area. Under normal circumstances these would be available for visitors to use to cook food to be eaten in the many picnics areas. Sadly as result of COVID restrictions the barbecues are cordoned off and not available for use.

There is also play areas for children and a zipwire, also not in use at the moment.

While walking about there are a number of interesting features like the carvings of
Gara and Jonay. Legend tells of a princess who fell in love with poor peasant, Jonay, their story ends in tragedy.

There are further carvings of donkeys, fun to clamber over and a photo opportunity. An old grape press is also to be seen.
It was most helpful to see to flowers , plants and bushes labelled and identified as we walked to the Cafe.

A number of walking trails commence at Laguna Grande.

When we visited here it was not very busy so we strolled around at our leisure virtually undisturbed.

Would consider here well worth a visit, we stayed an hour or two. However, when barbecues are working it could be a fun day out.

When we were here there was no entrance fee, might be different for tours.

Los de casa siempre por detrás
jun de 2021 • Amigos
Un grupo de amigas decidimos almorzar en este restaurante el día de nuestra llegada a la isla. Habia ido en otra ocasion, en 2018 y recuerdo una agradable experiencia. La cocina además de exquisita tiene una presentación excelente.
Sin embargo, en esta ocasión coincidimos con un grupo de turistas y tras un rato disfrutando de nuestro almuerzo, la guía turístico que les acompañaba decide hacer una presentación. Esta consistía en decir una serie de frases en Silbo Gomero, y nos enteramos porque se pone a gritar en medio del comedor para informarnos. Mis amigas y yo decidimos bajar el tono de voz y continuar con nuestra conversación, sin embrago, esta señora y el camarero encargado del comedor (era el que silbaba) deciden que no era adecuado y desde el otro extremo del comedor nos llaman la atención y "piden" que no hablemos (haciéndonos ambos el gesto de silencio 🤫) hasta que acabaran...
Lo más correcto hubiese sido acercarse a la mesa (solo habíamos dos españoles) e informarnos de lo que iba a suceder.
Evidentemente al marcharnos mi amiga que comentó al camarero lo sucedido en el comedor; su reacción no fue de sorpresa pero tampoco se disculpó.
Esta claro que el turismo en nuestras islas es importante pero tras la situación de pandemia que hemos vivido creemos que deberían cuidar más al turista local y este tipo de situaciones demuestran todo lo contrario.

In this cool area of high humidity there is luscious intense greenery to observe on a path going up to Alto de Garajonay.

Very creepy place especially in the afternoon when it gets cloudy and misty. Can feel very humid and wet. Near the entrance there’s a cafeteria but you’ll need basic Spanish to order anything

La chica que nos atendió en el pequeño centro que hay de atención al público del Parque nacional, fue muy amable y se explayó con las explicaciones de los senderos.

alkaa hyviä patikkareittejä. Ravintolan luota opasteet reiteille, reiteillä opasteet hyvin merkitty. Kannattaa ottaa huomioon että laaksossa ja sieltä edelleen reiteille on todella kylmä, laskeuduttuamme reitin alussa pohjalle maa oli kuurassa. Itse La Laguna Grande on aukio, jossa on grillipaikkoja, leikkivälineitä yms. Tietoa Garajonaysta, ja sitä piinanneesta tulipalosta. Tauluissa kerrotaan alueen kasveista. Mielenkiintoinen paikka. Ravintolasta patikoinnin päätteeksi hyvä kahvi ja gomeralainen keksi.

Grrr, avoid the stew!
jan de 2020 • Casais
This review is about the restaurant and bar only.

After a testing 24km ride on bikes over rough ground we were tired and hungry so headed straight for the restaurant. Unfortunately I choose the Laguna Grande special stew. Ugh, a really poor choice. It contained three types of meat and sounded just what I was looking for, big and hearty. It was certainly large but so disappointing. The chicken was tender but pale and unappetizing. The chunk of beef was too tough to get through and the piece of ham was 95% bone and sinew. It took me two minutes to get a tiny piece of edible ham. Mushy courgette and carrot was dreadful although the braised white cabbage was tasty. A transparent liquid at the bottom asked to be left alone, so I did. If only I'd chosen the bean and chorizo sausage stew!!

So why three stars? The roasted cheese starter was fine, ditto the Gomerian potatoes and red wine. My wife's watercress soup was average but the service was very good as was the coffee and cookie from the bar. (I'd eaten so little of the stew I needed the cookie, honest!).

The meal cost €31 including €9, I think, for that flipping stew.
