A miracle of nature
The archipelago was discovered by chance by Bishop Tomas de Berlanga from Panama in 1535. On his trip to Peru he got off course and discovered the Galapagos Islands. The islands were rarely visited and were mainly used as a refuge for pirates. After the arrival of Darwin, who laid the foundation for his theory of evolution here, people started to realise that the flora and fauna on the islands were unique. These days, it is a living laboratory for scientists, naturalists and passionate travellers and it is a privilege if you can visit this magical place.
