Ecomuseo de Guinea - Lagatario#

Lagatario is the Centre for Recovery of the El Hierro Giant Lizard. It is a highly rare species of Lizard (Galliotia Simonyi). It is declared to be the most endangered species in Europe and the fifth lizard in danger of extinction in the world. Until 1974 it was believed to be extinct when a shepherd found some in a place called La Fuga de Gorreta. The short but very informative guided visit allows the visitors to get to know the team responsible for their reintroduction and to contemplate the lizards that live in the Centre.
