This archipelago, made up of 13 main islands and a number of islets, is considered as a laboratory of living animals and plants that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

After Charles Darwin's visit in 1835, his observation was that life flourished in an archipelago of volcanic origin and that the species developed favourably in adverse conditions, he found that this was unique and after some time his famous work was published as ‘The Origin of the species’.


Despite its violent origin due to the large number of volcanic eruptions produced millions of years ago, we can find white sand beaches in Galapagos and above all a great number of unique animal species like the blue/red footed boobies, masked booby, penguins, flamingos, finches, frigate, albatross, cormorants and many other bird species. One of the species by which this archipelago takes its name are the famous Galapagos giant turtles, these species adapted to the conditions of each island and thus evolved according to the means of each habitat.


For all that is mentioned above Galapagos was declared ‘World Heritage’ by UNESCO in 1978, and subsequently ‘World Biosphere Reserve’ in 1985. Galapagos is certainly one of the most paradisiacal and special places in the world.
