Can you imagine yourself walking among the famous Giant Tortoises, Sea Lions and Exotic Birds? This can only be done in the archipelago of Galapagos, best known as the enchanted islands. Registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site (in 1978), these diverse environments mark one of the most important national parks in the world.
The Archipelago was a huge inspiration for the scientific research of Charles Darwin, who visited the Island back in 1835, where he conceptualized the theory of biological evolution, also known as ‘Darwinism’.
