About the origin of the name "La Gomera" The most reliable theory is that “La Gomera” is related to the tribes of the same name in the north of Morocco. These tribes are agricultural and they do not know the navigation system, the same as the natives of this island. Several traditions from the natives of this island still remain, but the most famous one is the language of the whistles (silbo gomero), a form of communication to surpass the limitations of the eventful orography. It was the last island that Christopher Columbus visited before reaching America in his first trip. The airport of La Gomera, situated in the south of the island in the municipal term of Alajeró 34 kilometers of the capital (San Sebastián de La Gomera) is the most modern one of the Canary Isles.
