Icod de los Vinos is a town in the northwest part of Tenerife. The most famous thing about this town is the Thousand-Year-Old Dragon Tree, El Drago Milenario.
This dragon tree is the largest and the oldest tree of the species Dracaena drago. As it does not display annual rings, the age of the tree cannot be determined exactly. Now the age of the tree is estimated to be around 250 years, not several thousand years as it was previously claimed.
The dragon tree is one of the symbols of Tenerife.
It proved we were not in Parque del Drago, we were at this square only. It would be great to walk around these trees and to look the oldest one closer.
Rain drops are clearly on the camera lens at these photos: it rained after all.
