Chipude Fortress

The best island views
The Chipude Fortress, in Vallehermoso, is a natural monument with a unique location, excellent views and a long history. The monument can be seen from practically anywhere in the southern part of La Gomera. Erosion and the passage of time have created an almost perfect plateau that rises at its highest point to 1,243 meters above sea level. Access to the top can be made along a convenient path. At the summit, visitors enjoy panoramic views that are so astonishing they give the sense of being on top of the world.
Ancient aboriginal settlement
In addition to its natural wealth and sports activities, the Fort is known as one of the most important sites for the ancient aboriginal religion. At the summit, there are remains of shelters used to perform rituals made with stones and animal carcasses.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
