El Julan

Discovering the ancient inhabitants of El Hierro
El Julan, a place of great natural beauty and ethnographic importance, is in the southwestern part of El Hierro, next to the Mar de las Calmas. The hillside has been made by a volcano and contains the best hiking trails on the island. The presence of human remains in the local area points to the presence of the Bimbaches, the aboriginal people of El Hierro. There are also petroglyphs of incalculable historical value that indicate the important cultural accomplishments of the ancient people.
History and nature side by side
The El Julan Visitor Centre enables visitors to reserve a tour and discover the archaeological remains in the company of specialized guides. The walking routes start every day at 8 in the morning. There is also the option of making the tour by car. The departure time is 9 am, and vehicles have a maximum capacity of 8 people.
